April 19, 2022

Paul Melendez, assistant department head of management and organizations, professor of practice in management and organizations, and founder of the Center for Leadership Ethics in the Eller College of Management, was selected to receive the University Distinguished Outreach Faculty Award.

The University of Arizona Distinguished Outreach Faculty Award is intended for individuals who demonstrate outstanding commitment to outreach in the following ways:

  • A significant record of conducting outreach policy, practices and implementation at the University
  • A record of distinguished creative scholarship
  • The sustained application of scholarship in non-formal classrooms such as the field, the community, business and industry, healthcare systems, courts, schools, home or wherever people seek information and assistance to create a better life for themselves and their families.

This award recognizes distinguished University outreach for the common good of the state and nation and is the highest honor awarded in this category at the University. Evidence of an innovative outreach program within their discipline, short- and long-term impacts and creative delivery methods are essential.

Melendez will be recognized at the Regent’s Professors, University Distinguished Professors and University Distinguished Outreach Faculty Induction Ceremony that honors recipients of the highest faculty teaching awards at the University.
