The Institute for the Arts and Humanities proudly announces the 21 winners of the 2018 Schwab Academic Excellence Awards.
The $3,000 prize recognizes faculty in each College of Arts and Sciences department across the arts, humanities and qualitative sciences. Department chairs nominate faculty for the award. Nineteen individual faculty members received the honor. Additionally, two academic departments are using the funds to support faculty research and service.
Former IAH Advisory Board Chair Julia Sprunt Grumbles (who is now a member of the University Board of Trustees) established the award in 2015 to help department chairs recognize teaching and scholarship. IAH Advisory Board Vice Chair Nelson Schwab III (’67, English) has since endowed the fund.
