As a Washington, DC local committed to the field of research administration, Julia Jacobsen played a paramount role in expanding the efforts of NCURA. Not only was she influential in bringing government speakers to the annual meetings, but when it came time for NCURA to establish an office in DC, Julia opened her home to the association. After she was elected as Secretary-Treasurer in 1974, she advocated for increased professional development opportunities and was instrumental in defining what would become NCURA’s Regions. In honor of the dedicated service to NCURA that Julia exemplified, the Distinguished Service Award was renamed the NCURA Julia Jacobsen Distinguished Service Award in 2013.
At each Annual Meeting, NCURA recognizes up to five members who have made sustained and distinctive contributions to the organization with its Julia Jacobsen Distinguished Service Award.
The Nominating and Leadership Development Committee (NLDC) invites nominations for this award. Nominees for NCURA’s Julia Jacobsen Distinguished Service Award must 1) be current or past members, and 2) have made significant contributions to NCURA. Please note, current National officers (President, Vice President, Secretary and Treasurer) and NCURA Standing Committee (FMC, NLDC and PDC) Chairs and Vice Chairs are ineligible for nomination for a Julia Jacobsen Distinguished Service Award.
