The J. Willard Marriott Library and the Office of the Vice President for Research will host the 5th annual CELEBRATE U: A Showcase of Extraordinary Faculty Achievements on April 1, 2020, from 5 pm to 7 pm. This event highlights University of Utah faculty who reached a pinnacle of professional success in 2019. We will honor faculty who authored a book, were primary contributors to a realized creative work, had an outstanding accomplishment in commercializing their research, or were selected to represent the top researchers within their college.
CELEBRATE U Task Force members are gathering names of book authors and researchers through department administrators and the Office of the Vice President for Research, respectively. Creators of exceptional, realized creative works can find more information about eligibility and the submission process on the Creatives page. Authors of books can find more information about eligibility and the submission process on the Authors page. Innovators and Entrepreneurs can find more information about eligibility and the submission process on the Entrepreneurs page.
Top Researchers are selected by their respective college Dean, with criteria for nominations found on the Researchers page.
Only nominees who meet the respective criteria for their category will be considered for the showcase. Those who are then selected as honorees will receive personal invitations in March with more details about the event.
In the meantime, please email your inquires to Abbeylin Farnsworth, J. Willard Marriott Library.
