Prof. Dean Neikirk has been named the recipient of a 2015 Civitatis award by The University of Texas at Austin.
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.
Prof. Neikirk was nominated for the award for his “extensive, effective and distinguished service record to his … department, college and [the] University of Texas.”
He will receive his award at the University Awards Dinner this coming Spring.
