Past Award Recipients

Loyola Marymount University annually recognizes outstanding faculty who have made exemplary contributions in the areas of teaching, scholarship and creative works, extramural funding, and service.  We encourage individuals, programs, departments, and colleges to nominate their most prominent faculty and their outstanding pre-tenure faculty for one of the available awards.   Nominations should be routed through the faculty member’s department chair and Dean’s Office.  Nominators are strongly encouraged to read through the application instructions and confer with their Dean’s office early in the process.
