Dr. Maureen Long and Glen Mapes were the inaugural recipients of the new Faculty Council Advocacy Award.

The award, announced at a special faculty meeting held on Jan. 13, was established for commitment of the highest level in the advocacy of the principles of integrity, courage and selfless action for the benefit of students, colleagues, staff, clients and the college.

Long, a professor of virology/microbiology in the department of comparative, diagnostic and population medicine, has long advocated on behalf of the college and shared governance in numerous capacities, including as a member of UF’s Faculty Senate, the University Constitution Faculty Standing Committee and the UFCVM’s Constitution Committee, Faculty Council and more.

Mapes serves as office manager in the college’s Human Resources office, working with faculty and staff and administration on all aspects of employment from recruitment to hiring to retirement and more, ensuring processes are as seamless as possible. His support of faculty during the tenure and promotion process was noted as especially appreciated.
