Recognizing Outstanding Faculty

The Office of the Provost prides itself on the outstanding faculty employed by the University of South Carolina. Our faculty are recognized each spring with university-wide awards for teaching, research, service and advising. Submission guidelines and the online submission form are available on each award page below. Each award page includes specific information about award eligibility. Separate submission forms must be submitted for one faculty member to be considered for multiple awards.

Award Deadlines

Please note that each award is a one-time career award and former winners are not eligible for consideration. This does not preclude past winner submissions for different faculty awards. For complete submission information, please see each award.
