Campus Awards for Excellence in Faculty Leadership

Several campus-level awards are given each year in recognition of excellence in faculty leadership for those faculty who distinguish themselves with their vision of the future and their effort to enable and promote others in shaping that future.


Illinois is a premier public university where faculty members provide outstanding leadership that enriches the intellectual vitality of the campus and the broader community.

Eligibility requirements, criteria, and nomination information for each award are outlined in the links below. Campus-level administrators (e.g., in the offices of the Chancellor and Provost, and deans) are not eligible. Awards are presented at the Celebration of Academic Service & Leadership Excellence.
