The Campus Safety, Health, and Environmental Association (CSHEMA) has named its 2018 class of winners for the Campus Leaders Who Care Award in recognition of their work to enhance laboratory and research safety at universities across the country. The Campus Leaders Award, which recognizes senior university leaders advancing health and safety issues on campus, aims to spotlight innovative research safety practices and drive broader awareness of lab safety as an oft-overlooked but critically important issue. APLU and CSHEMA partnered to recognize these outstanding programs. Kacy Redd, APLU’s Assistant Vice President of STEM Education Policy, served as an applicant reviewer for the awards.
APLU engages its membership through a series of initiatives led by councils and commissions, which help drive the APLU agenda. The APLU council structure enables university leaders with comparable titles, working in similar positions, to come together to address critical issues and expand their knowledge base within their professional area of expertise. The commission structure enables individuals, regardless of position and from multiple disciplines across the universities, to come together to address critical issues and expand their knowledge base in areas of common interest.
The nomination period for the APLU Board on Human Sciences’ Public Service and Lifetime Achievement awards is open until July 20. The awards, which recognize national leaders who have advanced the human sciences, will be presented on November 12, 2018 at APLU’s 131st Annual Meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana.
