Faculty Awards and Recognition

The Celebration of Faculty

The Office of the Provost and Academic Affairs is proud to host the annual Celebration of Faculty each spring to honor our faculty and give recognition to those granted tenure and promotion, as well as renewals, positive third-year reviews, post-tenure reviews, and sabbaticals. Each year's recipients of the Distinguished Teaching Award, Distinguished Research Award, Distinguished Service Award, Distinguished Advising Award, William V. Moore Distinguished Teacher-Scholar Award, and Distinguished Adjunct Teaching Award are announced, as well as faculty who will be honored with the Emeritus Faculty title.
