The Regents’ Awards are annual University funded awards that may be given in three areas:
- The Regents' Award for Superior Research and Creative Activity
- The Regents' Award for Superior Teaching
- The Regents' Award for Superior Professional and University Service and Public Outreach
As many as nine awards may be awarded annually, with the understanding the majority of the awards will be given for Superior Teaching. In accordance with Regents’ policy, academic units may submit no more than two names across all Regents’ Awards. Each award will consist of affixing the recipient’s name to a permanent plaque in a prominent and suitable location, a one-time award of $10,000, as well as a framed certificate.
