Staff Awards

Every year, Dean Scholz recognizes staff excellence with several categories of Staff Awards. The recipients support outstanding teaching, research and service across the college.

“We have exceptional staff in L&S. They are motivated, dedicated, smart and innovative. These awards go to some of our very best. It really shows. 

We couldn’t do it without you."
