OGDEN, Utah – Weber State University professor emeritus, Rod O. Julander, has been named the school's 2005 H. Aldous Dixon Award winner. The WSU Alumni Association will hold an award luncheon in his honor March 4 at noon in the Shepherd Union Ballroom.
Julander, who officially retired in 2003 though he continues to teach three courses each year, began his teaching career in 1960 at then Weber College in philosophy and political science. During his time at WSU, Julander stayed active politically serving as a senator in the Utah legislature, vice-chair of the Utah Democratic Party, member of the Ogden Transition Team, and co-chair of the Utah State Board of Family Services. He also won the Crystal Crest Professor of the Year Award in 1995, and the WSU Master Teacher Award in 1997.
Named in memory of the former Weber College president, the H. Aldous Dixon Award has been awarded annually since 1970 to honor a WSU professor or staff member who has demonstrated a career of excellence by going above and beyond the call of duty to support students. Dixon served as president of Weber College from 1919 to 1920, and again from 1937 to 1953.
The public is welcome to attend the luncheon. Tickets are $12 each and may be purchased online at alumni.weber.org or by calling the Lindquist Alumni Center at (801) 626-7535 by Feb. 28.
