Presidential Scholarly Achievement Awards Recognize Outstanding UW Faculty

University of Wyoming President Ed Seidel has recognized faculty members who demonstrate high achievement in scholarship with 2023 Presidential Scholarly Achievement Awards.

Started by Seidel in 2022, the awards include two tracks: one for tenured faculty and one for early-career faculty. Each track includes a monetary award and recognition at the President’s Commencement Dinner Thursday, May 11.

“Through the Presidential Scholarly Achievement Awards, I am honored to recognize this year’s exceptional group of faculty,” Seidel says. “All excel in scholarship, which is key to a thriving university and the achievement of objective 2 of our strategic plan — ‘Pursue Institutional Excellence.’”

The Presidential Scholarly Achievement Awards for tenured faculty at associate or full professor ranks who have demonstrated significant achievement focus on different colleges or disciplines each year. The honor includes a cash award of $2,500 each.
