This year marks the 50th anniversary of the creation of the David M. Darrin ’40 Counseling Award. To celebrate, the Phalanx Honor Society will be choosing 10 recipients, which will be comprised of two recipients from each academic school (Architecture; Business; Engineering; Humanities, Arts, and Social Sciences; and Science). In order to distinguish this year’s recipients, this award has been titled the David M. Darrin ’40 Counseling Award in Celebration of Clustered Learning, Advocacy, and Support for Students (CLASS). Previous recipients of the David M. Darin ’40 Counseling Award are eligible for nomination. Following this year, we will be proceeding with one recipient per year.
With this award, Phalanx recognizes faculty members who (1) “have made unusual contributions to the personal counseling of undergraduate students, (2) have generously shared time and talents with undergraduate students, and (3) have demonstrated special concern for the welfare of undergraduate students in and out of the classroom.” Please describe the responsibilities involved and the nominee’s performance in carrying them out. We strongly encourage additional letters of recommendation and other information that will bring to light the qualities that make this nominee a viable candidate for this honor.
