Honors & Awards

Faculty excellence is recognized and rewarded in a variety of ways at IUPUI. Recognition through campus and university honors and awards can add distinction to faculty members’ professional development as well as increase awareness of their teaching, research and scholarship, and engagement and service activities across IUPUI and Indiana University.
