Ferris State University faculty, staff, students and emeriti will be recognized for reaching audiences beyond the university community through scholarly or creative works.

Works include published non-fiction or fiction books, short stories, poems or scholarly articles, accepted conference presentations and posters, sound and video recordings of a musical or dramatic performance or art exhibits.
