The Civitatis Award was established in 1997 to recognize outstanding faculty citizenship. The Civitatis Award is conferred upon a member of the faculty in recognition of dedicated and meritorious service to the University above and beyond the regular expectations of teaching, research, and writing. The award is made by the President upon the recommendation of the Faculty Council Executive Committee.
Sue Greninger joined the UT faculty in 1978 and is associate professor in the Department of Human Development and Family Sciences. She served nine consecutive years as Secretary of the General Faculty and Faculty Council. She has also served as vice chair of the Faculty Senate more than 20 years ago. During this time the first joint meeting of the UT and A&M faculty councils was organized, a meeting that continues today. In addition, she has served on myriad other committees for her department and college as well as in service of the university, the UT System, and the community beyond the campus.
In the spring of each year, the Faculty Council Executive Committee, or a designated subcommittee of the FCEC, will solicit nominations. The Committee may recommend up to three candidates to the President for this honor.
The identification of appropriate candidates is important, and your participation is invited. Please refer to the information for the criteria for the award, the requirements for making a nomination, and the nature of the recognition given to the recipient(s). Also provided is a list of the past recipients.
