Awards

The Arnold School of Public Health proudly recognizes exemplary faculty, students and alumni with a set of distinguished awards in each category. Nominations are held during the spring semester, and the awards are presented each year during the annual Hooding ceremony, which coincides with May graduation activities.

Faculty Awards

Established in memory of a former professor and associate dean of the Arnold School, the James A. Keith Excellence in Teaching Award is designed to recognize teaching excellence. The Faculty Research Award recognizes a faculty member with an outstanding scholarly record. The Faculty Service Award recognizes a faculty member who has provided exceptional outreach to the community, made significant contributions to public health practice, or provided leadership in professional organizations or university governance.

Student Awards

Recognition for the most outstanding doctoral graduate is bestowed through the Doctoral Achievement Award, while the most outstanding master's-level graduate is honored with the Jeffrey Keith Mattison Award. These school-wide honors are complemented by an array of elite honors for master's and doctoral graduates across each of the six departments.

Alumni Awards

Established in honor of the School’s greatest benefactors, the Gerry Sue Arnold Alumni Award is open to all alumni who graduated less than 10 years prior to the current year and whose work has both made a difference to the profession and in the health of an identified community or population. Also in honor of the Arnolds, the Norman J. Arnold Alumni Medal is open to all alumni who graduated more than 10 years prior to the current year and whose work has had both a positive impact on the profession and on the health of an identified community or population and has brought recognition to the Arnold School of Public Health.
