Each academic year (AY), CBE presents the following awards to outstanding faculty and staff in the Spring term. 

This year, the faculty award for innovative teaching has been renamed the "Dean Jay Tontz Innovative Teaching Award." Dr. Jay Tontz, Department of Economics, was Dean of CBE for nearly 30 years and served our College and University with distinction.

Learn more about each award and past recipients.

In 2020, the chair (or a representative) of each CBE standing committee (Curriculum, Faculty Affairs and RTP) and the Associate Dean will form a group. The group will review the nominations, and upon consultation with the department chairs and the Dean, will select the recipients of the awards.  Normally, an employee should not receive the same award more than once within a 3-AY time window.
