Outstanding Honors Faculty Award

Each year the College recognizes one (or more) faculty members who have made a substantial and lasting contribution to the academic and intellectual lives of our students. Nominees are solicited from students and other faculty and chosen by a selection committee based on the criteria of who best represents the mission and values of the Honors College through their teaching, outreach, collaboration, and engagement.

Students who wish to nominate an Honors faculty member for the Outstanding Honors College Faculty Award can click below to complete a nomination form. If there are other students who are likely to support this nomination, please ask them to submit a separate nomination.

Nominators and nominees will be invited to the annual Honors Spring Awards Ceremony, held in mid-April, where the winner will be announced.

Nominations are due by the end of the day on March 1st
