Joseph Katz Award
for Distinguished Contributions to the Practice and Discourse of General and Liberal Education
Since 1992, every other year, the AGLS Council selects a person in the United States to receive the Katz Award. This is a person whose commitment and activity has contributed greatly to the improvement of the educational experience of students and to the understanding of the theory and practice of general and liberal education at the national level.
Nominations are to be made to the Council via the association executive director. The initial nomination requires the name, institution and a brief description for the nomination. Nominations can be submitted at any time. The Council will gather information and notify the nominator if the suggested person will be put forward for the final selection process.
The next Katz Award will be given at the annual meeting in Memphis, Tennessee on September 23.
