Alumni & Giving

Gallery of Distinction

The Gallery of Distinction is a formal recognition by the College of Education to publicly acknowledge administrators, faculty, or alumni of Florida A&M University who have made significant contributions to the profession and/or to the College of Education.

The expectation is that nominees epitomize the qualities of an exemplary professional for students, faculty, university and the community at large. The general category of inductees would include: education administrators, teachers, educators, alumni, consultants, donors and supporters, etc. The recipients will be selected by a committee comprised of College of Education (COE) staff and COE alumni named by the dean of the College of Education. Individuals may be nominated to the College of Education Gallery of Distinction Committee by FAMU College of Education administrators and faculty, members of the professional community, FAMU College of Education alumni, family member(s) of the nominee, and members of the Gallery of Distinction Committee.

Nominating Instructions

All nominees must meet the criteria in order for their credentials to be reviewed by the Committee. All nominations must be made by using an official Gallery of Distinction nomination application. The nomination application must be typed or printed using black ink, and must be completed in its entirety. Considerations will be given only to nominees with completed applications (No Exceptions). Please attach additional pages with the corresponding numbered items.

Limit nominations to one nominee, one category, per application. Group nominations will not be accepted. The Gallery of Distinction Committee will make its recommendations based solely on the information provided on the nomination application.
