Has someone in the St. Bonaventure community made your university experience better? Here is your opportunity to recognize that person’s Franciscan spirit and actions!
Faculty, students and staff are invited to support their St. Bonaventure family by nominating one of our remarkable individuals or organizations for recognition at the 2017 Fr. Joe Doino, O.F.M., Honors & Awards Program, slated for 4 p.m. Tuesday, April 4, in The Regina A. Quick Center for the Arts.
The Fr. Joe Doino, O.F.M., Honors and Awards Committee and the Student Government Association are seeking nominations of individuals and groups at St. Bonaventure who have made significant contributions to the university community during the past academic year.
The awards’ namesake, Fr. Joe Doino, was a much beloved friar who was known for his practical jokes, love of tennis and dedication as the SGA adviser. A professor, scholar, musician, preacher and priest, Fr. Joe became the first faculty member to receive the Faculty Appreciation Award posthumously. Fr. Joe, who died in 1994 at the age of 70, served as the director of Franciscan novices before starting his teaching career at St. Bonaventure in 1986. Fr. Joe was the adviser to Student Government, serving on the Student Government Awards Committee since its inception. The Honors and Awards Ceremony was renamed after Fr. Joe in 1995, honoring his commitment to the university community.
The Doino Award categories include: University Mission Volunteer of the Year; Adviser/Moderator of the Year; Program of the Year; Community Service Award; Staff Person of the Year; Organization/Club of the Year; Student Leader of the Year; Student Life Award; SGA Member of the Year; Faculty Appreciation Award; and Support of Diversity Initiatives.
Nominations can be made by any member of the university community, and full descriptions of the award categories are available here.
View the online nomination form via MySBU (under Available Surveys once you log in). Hard copy nomination forms are available in the Student Affairs Office, 203 Reilly Center. Nominations are due by Wednesday, March 22.
The awards will be presented at the Spring Honors and Awards Ceremony on April 4. The annual ceremony will also celebrate SBU personnel marking employment anniversaries and recipients of the 2017 Faculty Awards (Award for Professional Excellence in Teaching and Award for Professional Excellence in Community Service).
All members of the campus community are invited to attend. Following the ceremony, a reception with light hors d’oeuvres and desserts will be held in the atrium.
