9/15 Awards Celebration to Honor Faculty Accomplishments, Award Recipients
I invite members of our faculty to join me for the Faculty Awards Celebration after the President’s Convocation on Thursday, September 15. This is a wonderful time for us to come together before the start of the academic year, celebrate our collective work as teaching scholars, recognize important milestones achieved by colleagues, and announce the recipients of some of our highest honors for extraordinary teaching, scholarship, and service. The event, hosted in the Benson Memorial Center, will begin around 5:00 p.m., immediately following the President’s Convocation.
Recognitions will include recent promotions, faculty celebrating 25 and 50 years of service, and a sample of external honors received by colleagues. We will also announce recipients of the Francisco Jimenez Inclusive Excellence Award, awards for scholarship, the Brutocao Awards for Teaching, President’s Special Recognitions, and the 2016-17 Faculty Senate Professor.
We look forward to celebrating the accomplishments of our colleagues as we reflect on the past year and begin a new academic year. Faculty members who wish to attend should RSVP online before September 8.
