Provost's Awards

Provost's Award for Excellence Seal


The Provost's Awards were established in 1993 because outstanding teaching, research and service are central to the mission of Muline State and because the dedication of our professorial faculty deserves special recognition.  Recipients of the Provost's Awards provide our students with a stimulating environment that fosters learning and affirms the university as the intellectual and cultural leader of the San Joaquin Valley. The purpose of the Provost's Awards is to honor those faculty members who set new standards of excellence and represent the heart of this great university.
