In addition to the New Faculty Forum, the Center will provide opportunities for additional professional development for new faculty for Teaching and Learning throughout the academic year.

Faculty Recognition

Every year, each College on the Lincoln University campus nominates one faculty from their unit to be recognized for their excellence in Teaching. Faculty receiving this award will be recognized as a part of Lincoln University’s annual faculty recognition activities.

This award is presented annually to two (2) Lincoln University tenure-track, untenured (junior) faculty members to recognize teaching excellence. One faculty member per college is selected as a nominee for this award. College selection committees determine the nominees.

Each year, Lincoln University recognizes the community engagement of two of the university’s esteemed faculty members.
