Faculty Awards

Each year the university awards outstanding faculty members. The awards recognize faculty members for their outstanding efforts in teaching, research, continuous professional practices, and support of students.  SVSU has long prided itself as an institution where faculty impact and inspire students through scholarship, teaching, and service. We ask that you spread the word about the awards and consider nominating outstanding faculty. 

This award has been given since 1994 in recognition of an adjunct faculty member who shares both their academic expertise and professional experience with students. The award is named for Mary H. Anderson, herself a dedicated SVSU adjunct faculty member.

The late Mr. Robert J. House endowed this award in memory of his wife, Jeannette, to annually recognize the SVSU professor who had a profound impact on a graduate in business, arts, humanities, or education. This is not an award for excellence in teaching but rather an award for the faculty member who had a significant and positive impact on a student’s life.

This longest-standing SVSU award honors faculty members who are recognized for consistently demonstrating their knowledge of subject matter, exercising fairness and integrity, motivating students to excel, offering counsel and advice and for maintaining high standards for academic achievement.

The honoree of this award is a faculty member whose scholarly activity over an extended period of time has been of the highest quality and who has made a significant and/or longstanding contribution to the advancement of knowledge in a recognized field of scholarship or artistic endeavor.  The award was established in 1988 in honor of Dr. Warrick, a researcher for the Dow Corning Corporation and one-time interim dean of the College of SE&T.

Presented annually to one faculty member and one staff member, this award recognizes their contributions to students, the University and community through development of, participation in and attendance at SVSU co-curricular activities.

This award was established in 2016 by Tony and Joni Thomson, local Meemic Insurance agency owners who proudly serve the educational community and appreciate the commitment by SVSU faculty and staff to prepare educated, engaged citizens.
