CBSHS Awards of Excellence 2017

The College of Behavioral, Social and Health Sciences is pleased to announce five Awards of Excellence this year recognizing outstanding faculty and staff members who consistently excel in their positions and demonstrate exemplary contributions to students, the College, and its mission. The five awards reflect the varied dimensions of the faculty and staff roles and the potential to excel in teaching; research, scholarship, and creative accomplishment; advising and mentoring; and service and outreach.
