BYU Faculty Women's Association Awards
The philosophy of the awards given each year by the Faculty Women's Association is to recognize women who have made a valuable contribution at the international, national, regional, state, community levels and to the university, and their respective colleges and departments.
There are many women on our campus who have made outstanding contributions who do not qualify for other university awards but should be recognized for their efforts and accomplishments by the entire university community. The Faculty Women's Association awards allow another avenue for women to be recognized for their contributions.
Award winners are honored at the annual Spring Retreat.
Please consider nominating a woman colleague for a Faculty Women's Assocation award.. The deadline is February 28, 2018 (Wednesday)
