The purpose of the Board on Human Sciences Lifetime Achievement Award is to honor a nationally recognized leader who has a significant history of promoting and advancing the Human Sciences. Nominees for the BoHS Lifetime Achievement Award are individuals who serve or have served in significant faculty and/or administrative roles in higher education. Also, candidates will be individuals who earned recognition for advancing the mission of the Human Sciences and related disciplines in colleges and universities.
Leaders who have earned recognition as Human Sciences leaders and administrators are eligible to be nominated for the Board on Human Sciences Lifetime Achievement Award. Each BoHS member unit (college or university) is eligible to submit one nominee each year. Nominators shall submit a letter of nomination with a rationale for the candidate to be considered for the award. In addition to the letter, nominators are asked to provide a curriculum vita of the nominee. Former recipients of the Lifetime Achievement Award are ineligible for this award. The award will be presented at a special breakfast hosted by the Board on Human Sciences at the Association of Public and Land-grant Universities’ annual meeting. The award winner must be available to attend the meeting and speak to the organization. BOHS will provide travel expenses and appropriate recognition.
