The C. Davis Weyerhaeuser Award
The C. Davis Weyerhaeuser Award is given annually to a Fuller Seminary faculty member for excellence in one of the following areas: Scholarship, Teaching, Church Development on Campus, Creativity in Academic Leadership, Integration, or Recognition by Peers. At Fuller’s Commencement, the award recipient is presented with a check for $2,500 and a calligraphic certificate of recognition.
The C. Davis Weyerhaeuser Award is given to a faculty member of one of Fuller’s schools on a rotating basis. To be eligible for nomination, a faculty member must be tenured or tenure-tracked, and must not have previously received the Weyerhaeuser Award. Faculty of that year’s school vote by a secret ballot, after which the school’s dean brings the top three nominees to the Faculty Senate for consideration and the final selection of the award recipient. The first runner-up receives a letter of recognition along with a prize of $500.
The Weyerhaeuser Award was instituted in 1977 to honor the service of C. Davis Weyerhaeuser as Chair of the Board of Trustees. He was an active member of Fuller’s board from 1959–1985.
