Distinguished Faculty Awards

Distinguished Faculty Awards

The Butler University Distinguished Faculty Awards celebrate the professional accomplishments of the University's faculty, recognizing excellence in the categories of Distinguished Teaching, Distinguished Research, Scholarship and Creative Work, and Distinguished Service and Leadership. These awards recognize exemplary achievement, accomplishments and contributions across the length and breadth of the award winner's career at Butler University.

All members of the Butler community are invited to nominate a faculty member for the Butler University Distinguished Faculty Awards. Nominations are solicited during the fall semester.  Awardees are announced in the following spring semester.

The selection recommendation committee consists of faculty peers from across the University.  The Provost's office Faculty Development Fellows, the members of the Faculty Development Advisory Board, and the previous year's Awards winners will vet nominations and will select award winners in each of the three categories.  In addition to the honor of receiving a Distinguished Faculty Award, awardees also will receive a recognition plaque, a $3,000 stipend, and will be recognized at the Fall Academic Workshop.

One award from each category is presented annually. Because these awards represent the highest accolade a faculty member can achieve, awardees may only receive a Distinguished Faculty Award once in each area.
