Course Description

The Edward A. Dickson Emeritus/a Professorship Award is presented yearly to three retired UCR faculty to support their work on compelling projects in teaching, research, or public service activities. Edward A. Dickson served as a Regent of the University of California from 1913-1946, the longest tenure of any Regent.In 1955, Mr. Dickson presented the University with an endowment to provide for annual special professorships for retired faculty. In 2003, the funds for the Dickson award were separated into ten endowments, one dedicated to each campus. On the UCR campus, award oversight and evaluation is performed by the UCR Academic Senate Committee on Faculty Welfare, whose membership includes active and retired faculty. The Committee evaluates the merit and significance of the proposals and the nominees’ previous contributions in the areas of teaching, research, and service. Each Emeritus Professor receiving support from the Dickson endowment is known as the Edward A. Dickson Emeritus/a Professor for the duration of the award.
