Mr. Donald Cavalier, Ms. Ann Hagen, and Professor Naomi Scheman
The Outstanding Service to University Senate Governance recognition was created in spring 2014 to recognize faculty, P&A and civil service employees, who have made a significant impact on University Senate governance, have demonstrated a longstanding commitment to University Senate governance, and have served as an inspiration to others.

Donald Cavalier, Ann Hagen, and Naomi Scheman were recognized as this year's recipients at the May 5, 2016, University Senate meeting.

The governance service records for this year's recipients are available here.
