Outstanding Faculty Awards

The Outstanding Faculty Awards, established by the Academic Senate in 1992, are presented in recognition of the importance of teaching and the role of the faculty in the shared governance of our University. The Awards commend the superior accomplishments of faculty and acknowledge our sense of community and faculty commitment to excellence in the life of our University and community.

Recipients of these awards are recognized for having positively affected the life of the University through their teaching, service, or scholarly and creative activities, displaying consistent and engaging collegiality and a strong commitment to students throughout their career at California State University, Sacramento.

The Faculty Senate announces the call for awards each fall. Each college selects a maximum of a single award in the categories of Outstanding Teaching, University Service, Community Service, and Scholarly and Creative Activity and reports the award winners to the Faculty Senate. An award ceremony is held each spring for the recognition of award recipients.
