What is it?

Each year at Commemoration (Apple) Day in March, SGA recognizes three outstanding instructors with the Distinguished Faculty Award.  This award is based on excellence in instruction and service to students on campus. Three faculty members are selected from student selected nominees. Student Government encourages students and organizations to take advantage of this opportunity to have their professors recognized for the hard work and superior classroom skills.  Our students succeed because our instructors care.

How it Works

Each February students nominate instructors.  Any student may nominate one (1) faculty member or any registered student organization may nominate two (2) faculty members by completing the nomination form.  The nominations are submitted to a committee led by the Academic Affairs Director.  This committee then selects and notifies the three finalists, who receive medallions at Convocation.
