Nominations due by noon Friday, February 14 in the AFT Office Robinson Hall Room 114

Nominees for the annual Gary J. Hunter Award for Excellence in Mentoring Rowan University Students are requested. We seek to recognize AFT members (faculty, professional staff, coaches and librarians) who go to extraordinary lengths to mentor students. This award acknowledges the efforts of those who mentor students as exemplified by Gary J. Hunter, a professor of history at Rowan University for 29 years, ensuring that while such efforts often go unnoticed, they will not go unappreciated.

The recipient of the award will be honored at the University Awards Ceremony.

Nomination packets can be picked up in the AFT Office, Robinson Hall, Room 114 or download from the AFT website at
