We will honor faculty, administrators, staff, and emeriti who have recently had a book published by a recognized publishing house. These may be scholarly books, works of fiction or non-fiction, poetry, art books, textbooks, anthologies, or e-books. In addition, faculty who have served as the editor or co-editor of a book are eligible.

Vanity press books, self-published books, un-published manuscripts, pamphlets, brochures, custom-published course anthologies, course packs or writing a chapter in an edited book are not eligible (note that another recognition event later this Fall will feature faculty who have peer-reviewed scholarly and creative publications and work).

Books must bear a copyright date between January 1, 2013 and December 31, 2014. At the November event, authors and editors will be individually recognized by the appropriate Dean and the campus community will be invited to the recognition event.
