Awards & Honors

Recognizing Faculty Excellence

Faculty at the University of Connecticut are known nationally and internationally for their excellence in teaching, research/scholarship, and service. As a highly visible measure of this, our faculty are frequently recognized for their excellence and expertise as recipients of many internal and prestigious national and international awards. Each achievement is richly deserved and further elevates the international reputation of UConn as a top research institution.

We believe that celebrating our faculty through university awards and honors is integral to our success as a flagship university and information on current and emeritus faculty awards and honors are highlighted here.
