Distinguished Faculty Awards


  • Nominations may be made by any member of the University community and are due by February 1. Nomination expectations and forms are included on this website.
  • Awardees will be announced in the spring semester. Since these University-level awards are the highest accolades given by the University to its faculty, the announcement of them should be made when faculty are gathered together, such as at Commencement.
  • The selection recommendation committee consists of faculty peers from across the University.  In the first year, the Faculty Development Advisory Board could serve this function; successive years will have previous awardees serve as the selection recommendation committee.
  • One award from each category will be given annually. Awardees may only receive a Distinguished University Award once in each area.
  • In addition to the honor of receiving a Distinguished Award, awardees will also receive a recognition plaque, a $3,000 stipend, and they will be recognized at Commencement and the Fall Faculty Workshop.
