Faculty Awards and Recognition

Distinguished Faculty Address

Each year the University recognizes the work of one faculty member whose achievements in research, scholarship, and teaching place that person in the front ranks of his or her discipline. The institution invites that individual to deliver a Distinguished Faculty Address to the University community. The nominee should be a current faculty member on appointment in 2013-14 and be available during the spring semester to present the address.

Criteria for the honor of being invited to deliver this address include:

  •  National/international distinction for original contributions to their discipline;
  •  Receipt of extramural support;
  •  National/international service; and
  •  Achievements in undergraduate and graduate education.
