The annual Academic Achievement Awards recognize outstanding student achievement in a variety of categories, many of which align with national merit awards. A number of this year’s Academic Achievement Award recipients are also University nominees for these national awards. Students are nominated by faculty and the winners are chosen from a diverse committee of faculty and staff from across the AU.
These awards would not be possible without the dedicated faculty who serve as teachers and mentors to our talented students. In light of this, we recognize outstanding faculty mentorship through student nominations of faculty. This year we also recognize excellence in teaching in a virtual environment to highlight the faculty who have continued to motivate and inspire their students in online classes.
