The criterion for the award is distinguished service to faculty governance over several years with an emphasis on university-wide service.

Regents' Award for Distinguished Public Service

The recipient must have excelled in building a positive relationship between the Ann Arbor campus and one or both regional campuses, as exemplified by Jackie Lawson's career.
