UA Little Rock announces college-level Faculty Excellence award winners

The University of Arkansas at Little Rock will honor 17 of its top faculty members during the Faculty Excellence Awards Thursday, April 12, at 5:30 p.m. in the College of Engineering and Information Technology Auditorium.

A panel of external judges will review the achievements of the college-level winners and select the university-wide winners in the categories of teaching, research, and public service. The three university-wide winners will each receive a cash prize of $5,000.
