In recognition of the outstanding leadership of David F. Gruber
(Philosophy, Social Science Division), The Missouri Conference of the American
Association of University Professors (AAUP) established the David F. Gruber
Leadership Development Award at its statewide meeting, March 5, 2005, in
Columbia, Missouri. Gruber has served as an officer of that body since 1993 and
has been a member of the National Council of AAUP since 1996. For years to come,
this award will give monetary support to AAUP members who attend training
seminars and regional or national meetings of AAUP. On March 23, President Dixon
presented Gruber with the Missouri Conference’s plaque, which commemorates the
naming of this award in his honor.
