UA Little Rock faculty members are strong teachers, ground-breaking researchers, and dedicated public servants. This year marks the 31st anniversary of the Faculty Excellence Awards initiated by the UA Little Rock Foundation Board of Directors the Faculty Excellence Awards in 1989 to recognize outstanding performance in teaching, research or creative endeavors, and public service.

We are able to continue this cherished tradition because of the valued contributions of generous sponsors. University-level winners are selected by the University of Arkansas at Little Rock Board of Visitors who review the achievements of college-level winners in the areas of teaching, research and creative endeavors, and public service.
