Faculty Excellence Award Winners

Each year, faculty submit their accomplishments for the past year in four categories of faculty performance. These include teaching, student engagement, scholarship and service. And each year, those faculty who have distinguished themselves in one of these categories are recognized with an award at the Annual Faculty Award Ceremony. Since the College of Social Sciences, Mathematics and Education was formed in 2007, we have made the following awards to CSSME faculty.
