UTPA Faculty Excellence Awards Program

The Faculty Excellence Awards Program recognizes and appreciates the many exceptional efforts of UTPA faculty members. It is an opportunity to share accomplishments widely and build community through the celebration of those contributions. The awards program recognizes and rewards faculty excellence in three categories: teaching, research and service.

The University of Texas-Pan American Foundation cosponsors this program. Recognition is accorded at the college level and at the university level. Each faculty excellence award consists of a stipend and a framed certificate.

The $30,000 a year program is composed of the following awards:

$10,000 for Outstanding Teaching Awards
(One university award at $4000, six college awards at $1000 each)

$10,000 for Outstanding Research Awards
(One university award at $4000, six college awards at $1000 each)

$10,000 for Outstanding Service Awards
(One university award at $4000, six college awards at $1000 each)

A college committee will determine the college-level winners in each category. The External Selection Committee selects the University-level winners among the college-level winners in each category. Awardees will be recognized at The Faculty Excellence Awards Ceremony.
