Angus H. MacLean Award for Excellence in Religious Education
Each year, the Unitarian Universalist Association (UUA) presents the Angus H. MacLean award to a person who has made outstanding contributions to religious education. The award was established in 1972 by the St. Lawrence University Theological School Alumni Association and the Religious Education Department of the UUA.
In creating the award, the Alumni Association said, "Angus H. MacLean, Dean and Teacher of Religious Education at St. Lawrence University Theological School, was one of the pioneers in Unitarian Universalist (UU) religious education. It is appropriate that we recognize the inspiration and warmth that Angus gave to us all and his great concern for the religious nurture of both children and adults."
Each spring, a committee chaired by the UUA's Curriculum Director selects a recipient. Anyone may nominate a recipient. A nominee for the award should be a UU who has achieved several of the following:
- Contributed to the quality of religious education at the local level.
- Raised the quality of religious education at the denominational level.
- Been innovative in the use of religious education resources.
- Brought dignity to the profession of religious education.
- Influenced religious education beyond our denomination.
A nomination must specify the nominee's qualities, achievements, and contributions relevant to the award criteria and provide nominee contact information and basic biographical data. Submit nominations to:
