Faculty Excellence Awards

Each academic year the university recognizes the excellent contributions that faculty make to the life of the institution at the annual Last Lecture & Award’s Dinner. Faculty, staff and students nominate faculty for excellence awards. Each year an awards committee which is comprised of faculty from each of the colleges, recent award winners, and a few administrative staff who work closely with faculty, review the nominations and select who wins the award for each category. 

Each award includes a cash prize along with a commemorative plaque. Last year’s award winners are listed below.
