Buford Peace Award applications now availableBy Heather Buchanan | 02/15/2015 11:43pm
The University of Alabama School of Social Work is now accepting applications for the Buford Peace Award. Every year, the award is given to a UA faculty member who demonstrates a commitment to mediation, peace, promoting justice and overcoming prejudice throughout his or her professional career. Faculty members from any field are eligible for nomination by students, faculty members or others. Those previously nominated can be nominated again if updated forms are submitted. The recipient of the award will be recognized at a ceremony this spring and will receive $1,000. The deadline for nominations is March 6, and questions can be directed to Liz Dykes at (205) 348-5384 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
