Harris Faculty Awards

The Harris awards were generously created through endowments by the Harris family. The Harris family endowed these awards to highlight the special features of VFIC colleges and universities by recognizing faculty members “whose professional history reflects a strong, clear and abiding commitment to excellence in classroom teaching within the undergraduate liberal arts and sciences.”

Congratulations to the 2023 Harris Family Faculty Award Winners.
