The 2016 FIT Faculty Excellence Awards
This award recognizes classroom and non-classroom faculty members who demonstrate outstanding teaching, professional development, and a commitment to student learning, using exemplary research, scholarship or creative activity, and exceptional service to instruct students while serving as an active member of the academic community.
The 2016 President’s Award for Faculty Excellence
This award recognizes full-time classroom faculty members.
