Faculty will be honored for their accomplishments during the King/Haggar and Haggerty Teaching Excellence Awards Ceremony at 3:30 p.m. on Jan. 22 in the Art History Auditorium. The recipients of the the King Fellow Award, the Haggar Fellow Award and the Haggerty Teaching Excellence awards will be announced. Faculty who are retiring or receiving King/Haggar Scholar awards or sabbaticals will also be recognized.
"We are delighted to celebrate the talents and accomplishments of UD's gifted faculty," said Bill Berry, executive vice president and provost. "We hope that all faculty join us for one of the most joyous events of the year."
Since 1985, the University has recognized outstanding faculty achievements through this ceremony, which has been a highlight of the spring semester. King and Haggar Fellow Award recipients are nominated each year by their fellow faculty. Haggerty Teaching Excellence Award recipients are selected based on a vote of current students and alumni.
This event is supported through the generosity of the Carl B. and Florence E. King Foundation, Mr. and Mrs. Edmond R. Haggar and The Patrick and Beatrice Haggerty Foundation.
The King Fellow Award is the highest faculty honor. The recipient must have been a member of the UD faculty in a full-time capacity for more than eight years and made a significant contribution to the University through scholarly work, excellence in teaching and as an exemplary colleague.
The Michael A. Haggar Fellow Award is given to an outstanding junior faculty member who has served the University full-time for no more than eight years. The recipient of this award is acknowledged as an excellent teacher and up-and-coming scholar.
The Haggerty Teaching Excellence Awards recognize great teaching. Four to five awards of $5,000 will be presented. At least two awards will go to faculty who teach undergraduates, one to a faculty member who teaches College of Business graduate students and one to a faculty member who teaches Braniff or School of Ministry students.
