Faculty awards recognize and promote a culture of academic excellence at the University
of Georgia. Awards are a signal to our peers, our students, and external stakeholders
that faculty at the birthplace of public higher education are among the very best
in their fields.
The University of Georgia offers awards to its faculty that recognize excellence in each component of its tripartite mission of teaching, research, and service, as well as career achievement awards for contributions that span these mission areas.
Faculty are strongly encouraged to pursue these institutional honors, as well as national and international awards that align with their career stage and achievements. In many cases, the process for preparing dossiers that enable faculty to compete for internal and external awards is similar. For information on prestigious and competitive external awards, please visit the Office of Research website.
