Virtual Faculty Recognition Ceremony

The Faculty Recognition Ceremony, traditionally the Faculty Convocation, gives us the opportunity to acknowledge the outstanding accomplishments of our faculty and welcome our newest members of the faculty. We will recognize our newly tenured and promoted faculty, our faculty emeriti, the recipient of the Academic-Service Learning Faculty Award, and the recipient of the Faculty Excellence in Student Engagement Award.
