CUSS 2021 Award Committees

CUSS Digest Banner

Below are our section’s 2021 award committee calls. Please note we have a new award this year, the Publicly-Engaged Scholar Award. I thank all of the award committee chairs and members for their willingness to serve as well as council member Jean Beaman for organizing these committees. You all are publishing great work and I am excited to see who gets recognized next year.

All submissions must be received by March 1, 2021 and award winners will be notified by June 30, 2021.

Best,

Derek Hyra
