The Annuit Coeptis Award honors five emerging professionals at a dinner where there can be wide-ranging discussion and exchange about professional issues. The dinner carries on a tradition established by Professor Philip A. Tripp and Ursula Delworth who dearly loved to challenge his contemporaries and junior colleagues in a spirit of personal and professional sharing, high good humor and thoughtful intellectual debate. The Latin phrase, annuit coeptis, reflects Dr. Tripp's and Dr. Delworth's optimism for the future of the profession by suggesting that "He has smiled upon that which we have begun."
