Scroll & Quill Society

During Spring 2016, Faculty Excellence relaunched a streamlined and contemporary UCF Scroll & Quill Society. This society is based on two prestigious faculty clubs established in the 1980s to honor faculty members who brought recognition to the university through: (a) The Quill, to recognize authored books and (b) The Scroll, to recognize significant and sustained peer reviewed publications in national and international journals.

Contemporary Purpose

A. Dale Whittaker, Ph.D.

I’ve often said that people make a university great. And that’s especially true for UCF. We have outstanding faculty and staff members who are dedicated to lifting the lives and livelihoods of our students, conducting cutting-edge research and making a difference in our community and across the globe.

Building on the foundation of UCF’s original Quill and Scroll societies, UCF’s Faculty Excellence re-launched a streamlined and contemporary UCF Scroll & Quill Society in 2016. This recognition program was redesigned to continue to honor the Legacy Members of the original Quill and Scroll Societies while extending recognition for contemporary UCF faculty scholarly achievements across all disciplines. In line with the UCF Collective Impact Strategic Plan, the specific focus of this society is on recognizing faculty members who have demonstrated sustained scholarly contributions (over a period of at least 10 years at UCF), and have brought positive national and/or international attention to the institution through this scholarly work.
