Celebration of the Faculty - faculty awards


Celebration of the Faculty/Gold Standard Award

Each year in March, the Office of Faculty Affairs and Faculty Development holds an Annual Celebration of the Faculty.

At this event, we recognize new, promoted, and emeritus members of faculty from all colleges. We also recognize and honor those members of our faculty who are role models, exemplifying the values of Upstate with emphasis on professionalism, mentoring, and support of others. We honor these faculty members by presenting them with our Gold Standard Award.

Five faculty members will be selected by committee. All faculty, staff and learners are encouraged to nominate faculty. 

Nominations will be solicited by email a few months before the event.
