Outstanding Faculty Award Winner
Oklahoma City University announced this week that Jacci Rodgers, professor of accounting in the Meinders School of Business, is the Outstanding Faculty Award winner. The Outstanding Faculty Award is OCU’s premier annual honors for members of the faculty. A committee of five former award recipients selects the winner based on the candidate’s abilities in teaching, scholarship and service to the university. The committee accepts nominations from faculty members, students and administrators, and the committee interviews the top candidates to determine the winner. Winners also receive an honorarium and are invited to attend the Wye Seminar of the Aspen Institute the following summer. The seminar is one of the most prestigious university leadership workshops in the country. Rodgers will officially accept her award during the Spring Commencement ceremony, which will be May 7 at OCU’s Freede Center. “I was surprised and am honored to be nominated and selected by my peers for such a prestigious award,” Rodgers said after the announcement by university President Tom McDaniel and Provost Bernie Patterson.
