Every year the MUW Alumni Association and the MUW Star and Scepter Chapter of Mortar Board conduct a campus-wide election to select MUW’s Faculty Member of the Year. This Award, which is announced at graduation and includes a $1000 check from the Alumni Association, is highly coveted. It honors those faculty members who exhibit excellence in teaching, advising, and professional activities, in particular those who go beyond all expectations to support MUW’s students and academic programs.
Only full-time tenured/tenure-track MUW faculty members are eligible and must be nominated by AT LEAST one other full-time tenured/tenure track faculty member AND AT LEAST three currently enrolled full-time students.
Faculty who have received the award in the previous DECADE are not eligible, including, Dr. Jane Wenstrom (2006), Dr. James Keller (2007), Dr. Bryan Hilliard (2008), Dr. Bonnie Oppenheimer (2009), Dr. George Pinchuck (2010), Mr. Todd Bunnell (2011), Dr. Brian Anderson (2012), Ms. Janice Giallourakis (2013), Ms. Mary Jo Kirkpatrick (2014), and Dr. Kim Whitehead (2015).
Nominations are NOW OPEN and will close at 5:00 p.m. on April 13th, to allow time for a Canvas ballot to be prepared and for a run-off election, if necessary. A copy of this form, with nominators’ original signatures (and student ID numbers, for student nominators), should be sent to:
