conferring upon

the title of
Assistant Professor of English, Emerita

WHEREAS Dr. D.A. Bartlett has served the University of Alaska Fairbanks with distinction in teaching, research and public service from 1982 to 2004; and

WHEREAS Dr. Bartlett has been beloved by students for her warmth and humor as much as for her depth and breadth of knowledge; and has opened new worlds of scholarship to her students through her erudite and inspired integration of art, history, linguistics and literature; and whose reputation for sharing with others her sheer joy of learning has attracted countless numbers of students to her crowded classroom; and whose intellectual exuberance has invigorated her students to seek their own discoveries; and

WHEREAS Dr. Bartlett has greatly enriched her students' appreciation for the humanities through her extraordinarily vast investigations into subjects ranging from classical Greek mythology to Alaska Native oral traditions; and has similarly been a valued resource to her peers for her expertise in a range of subjects; and has seamlessly melded her great love of antiquity with an equally enthusiastic adoption of distance education technology, allowing her to expand beyond the classroom walls to reach rural students across the state; and

WHEREAS Dr. Bartlett has extended her regard for her students' intellectual development to sincere concern for their personal well-being, serving as mentor and advisor for scores of scholars; and has been a valued member of the English department for her carefully considered opinions and for her willingness to assume additional work to the benefit of both students and colleagues;

NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED that the University of Alaska Fairbanks expresses its deep appreciation to Dr. D.A. Bartlett for her extensive contributions to both the state of Alaska and the university; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that the University of Alaska Fairbanks, in further recognition of the invaluable services rendered by Dr. Bartlett and as evidence of the university's desire that her identification with the university be maintained, hereby salutes the appointment of Dr. D.A. Bartlett as Assistant Professor of English, Emerita; and

BE IT FURTHER RESOLVED that this resolution be appropriately engrossed and signed by the chancellor of the University of Alaska Fairbanks as further evidence of the esteem and respect in which he holds Dr. D.A. Bartlett, and conveyed to Dr. Bartlett on this day of May 9, 2004.
