University Faculty Scholars Program


The University Faculty Scholars Program was established in 2012 by Chancellor Woodson to recognize and reward emerging academic leaders among our faculty. Each year, approximately twenty (20) tenured or tenure-track faculty scholars are identified to receive this honor.  Faculty members selected as University Faculty Scholars will carry the title for a five-year period and receive a $10,000 annual supplement that may be used for supplemental salary and benefits or programmatic support.
