The Chewning Award was established by the Christian Business Faculty Association to perpetuate the passion and commitment of integrating personal faith and business as modeled by Dr. Richard C. Chewning (more about Dr. Chewning). The award is bestowed no more than once annually to reinforce and encourage deserving individuals and to make their successes known among colleagues, students and the world-at-large.
The initial endowment for this award was provided by the ServiceMaster Corporation under the leadership of its CEO, William Pollard.
Potential recipients should love the Word of God and manifest Christ-likeness in their scholarship and/or in the practice of teaching or serving in business. The integration of Christian faith in learning may be demonstrated through discovery, integration, application and/or teaching. Nominees are expected to excel in more than one of these scholarship areas and/or be exceptional in one. The award criteria are not limited to written scholarship; teaching and service qualify as well.
The honoree receives a plaque, a monetary award and a public tribute.
