Academic Affairs honors select faculty members each year with the opportunity to serve as Commencement Mace Bearers.  

The Mace Bearer is a faculty honor and is symbolic of the faculty member's commitment of service to students, to scholarship, and to society.  In May, this role was filled admirably by Dr. Sampson Gholston and Dr. Darlene Showalter.  It is now time to solicit nominations for 2022-2023 Mace Bearers.

The Mace Bearer title will be awarded to faculty members who have exhibited longstanding commitment and service to the University community and in recognition of their significant contributions to the mission of the University.  

Please nominate faculty members you feel embody and truly exhibit the true mission and spirit of UAH and the commitment described above.  Nominations may be sent to Deanna Hughes at by end of the day on Thursday, November 10, 2022.  The nominations will be reviewed by the Provost, in conjunction with the Associate Provosts and the Council of Deans, and appointments made.
