CLAS Collegiate Scholar Award

The Collegiate Scholar award was inaugurated in 2008 to recognize mid-career faculty for exceptional achievement. The award carries discretionary funds to support the recipient's teaching and research initiatives. Collegiate Scholar awards are funded by a generous unrestricted gift to the College.

The CLAS Committee on Faculty Promotion and Tenure selects each year's class of Collegiate Scholars from among those faculty recommended for promotion and/or tenure.
