Dr. Tammi Richardson receives the 2024 SEC Faculty Achievement Award

The SEC Faculty Achievement Awards highlight the vital role educators play in advancing the mission of the SEC and its institutions, as well as their dedication to fostering academic excellence through teaching, innovation and service. First presented in 2012 and selected by the SEC provosts, these awards honor one individual from each SEC member university who has excelled in teaching, research and service. With their selection, each winner will become their campus nominee for the SEC Professor of the Year Award, which will be announced later in the spring.

Our Departmental Chair, Dr. Tammi Richardson, was just awarded a 2024 SEC Faculty Achievement Award and will represent USC. Dr. Richardson was named the Michael J. Mungo Distinguished Professor of the Year in 2022, earning USC's top teaching award. Her excellence in teaching coupled with her strong research success, most recently marked by her role as founding director of the Institute for Clean Water and Healthy Ecosystems, have earned her the SEC Faculty Achievement Award and SEC Professor of the Year nomination.

Challenge the conventional. Create the exceptional. No Limits.
