Spring semester has been busy. Between switching to online instruction, planning a virtual commencement and prepping for summer semester, the term has been unusual, to say the least.
But this is also the time the University of Utah decides who to honor among its best and brightest faculty and staff. Nominations for the Presidential Scholar Awards and the new Online Excellence Awards both are due June 8.
The Presidential Scholar Awards recognize exceptional mid-career faculty (between promotion to associate professor through promotion to professor) at risk of recruitment away from the University of Utah. Presidential Scholars will be named July 1 and honored at an event in the fall.

The new Online Excellence Awards will recognize the extraordinary efforts of University of Utah faculty and staff to maintain our education mission during the COVID-19 pandemic. These awards will be presented during our December 2020 Commencement.
