2019 University Faculty Award Recipients and Years of Service Honorees

Please join me in congratulating the 2019 University Faculty Award recipients. Each of the individuals listed below has contributed immeasurably to the AU community, to their disciplines, and to the lives of their students and colleagues. They have demonstrated excellence in their teaching, scholarship, service, and efforts to promote diversity and inclusion.

I am also pleased to announce the faculty members who have reached milestone anniversaries ranging from 25 to 50 years of service, as well as those retiring during the current academic year. For the first time in 2019, we will also honor our adjunct faculty who have served for 25 or more years. The impact that these dedicated individuals have made to AU is remarkable, and they have shaped the institution in countless ways.  

We will celebrate both groups at the annual Faculty Recognition Dinner later this month. Many thanks to all of our 2019 honorees for their exceptional work!
