The Dean of Science Distinguished Scholar Medal recognizes outstanding and sustained contributions which demonstrate a balanced approach to scholarly activities in both teaching and research. It is awarded by the Dean of Science to a deserving faculty member in the Faculty of Science, and is not necessarily awarded every year.
The spirit in which the Distinguished Scholar Medal is awarded is:
All professional staff at Memorial University of Newfoundland have two primary obligations: to seek new knowledge and to transmit their accumulated knowledge to others. All decisions affecting the career of a professor must therefore take into consideration his or her performance in the areas of research and teaching.
