UI Human Rights Committee seeks nominations for Hubbard Award

IOWA CITY, Iowa -- The University of Iowa Human Rights Committee is seeking nominations for the annual Philip G. Hubbard Human Rights Award.

The award is presented each spring to a UI student who has made the most outstanding contribution in the area of human rights. It consists of a plaque and a $1,500 scholarship to be applied toward the student's educational costs.

Established in 1981, the Hubbard Award honors Philip G. Hubbard, who was UI vice president for student services and dean of academic affairs from 1966 until 1989. In 1963, Hubbard was selected as the faculty representative to serve on the first UI Human Rights Committee. He dedicated himself to human rights and equal opportunity throughout his distinguished career.

Nominations should be submitted to the Human Rights Committee, 114 Jessup Hall, no later than noon Friday, March 3. The award recipient will be announced at the annual Finkbine Leadership Dinner Tuesday, April 25.

A brochure with details about the award criteria and procedures for nomination, as well as a nomination form, is available in the UI Office of the Vice President for Student Services, 114 Jessup Hall, or by calling (319) 335-3557.
