The College of Letters, Arts and Sciences held its first ever Faculty and Staff Appreciation and Awards ceremony on March 31, 2021. We thought it was about time to formally recognize the work of our CLAS Departments, chairs/directors, faculty and staff and created the CLAS Awards. Winners for the CLAS Awards recognize faculty and staff members who have demonstrated excellence in their roles and contributions to MSU Denver. The three categories of awards include:
  • The CLAS Faculty Excellence Awards represent faculty members who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, provided outstanding service to the University and have made notable contributions to research and scholarship.
  • The CLAS Outstanding Staff Awards represent staff members who have shown excellence in their positions, have made outstanding contributions and demonstrated a strong commitment to their students, staff, faculty, CLAS and the University.
  • The CLAS Deans Awards, represent those who have received the highest honor and distinction for CLAS.
We received over 40 nominations for the 2021 award cycle. CLAS Awards occur every Spring semester. Congratulations to the 2021 CLAS Award Winners: CLAS Faculty Excellence Award Winners Excellence in Teaching: Lecturers/Affiliate Faculty
