Distinguished Faculty Awards
Since 1982, VCU has paid formal tribute at convocation to members of the faculty who conduct the mission of the University with distinction and exemplify what is best about the VCU. Each year, awards are granted in four areas.
- Distinguished Teaching Award
- Distinguished Scholarship Award
- Distinguished Service Award
- Outstanding Early Career Award
- Outstanding Term Faculty Award
- University Award of Excellence
Nomination Process and Timeline: The President of VCU typically calls for nominations in early March, with a deadline of late March or early April. In the School of Medicine, department chairs submit nominations to the Dean for review by the School of Medicine Nominating Committee. The Nominating Committee selects one candidate in each award category to be nominated by the School of Medicine. Each nominee’s department chair prepares a nomination packet and submits it to the President. Note: university-wide, each school or college may submit only one nominee per award category.
