In partnership with Life at UCF, Faculty Excellence will celebrate women faculty again this year whose scholarship, teaching and/or service advance the success of undergraduate and graduate students.
The “Commitment to do Extraordinary Things” is the focus of this year’s award. It is designed to celebrate a successful initiative spearheaded by an applicant or nominee. The effort must have an academic focus and be within the last five years or ongoing. Applicants must have a leadership role in the initiative, and be able to explain the current or future impact. Efforts can be formal, such as a memorandum of understanding, or informal, such as a service-learning project. Initiatives can be funded or unfunded.Back to Top
