Each spring the BFA presents up to twelve faculty with awards for faculty excellence to recognize the outstanding work of Boulder Campus faculty members. These awards are especially notable because Boulder Campus colleagues make the nominations as well as the selections of award recipients.

Each award includes a $3,000 cash prize, funded by the Chancellor's office.

Recipients are honored each spring at an official presentation ceremony and reception.

The BFA normally announces its Excellence Awards program in late fall each year, via campus E-Memo. The BFA Office will post award details and nomination instructions via this website. Nomination packets are normally due in the BFA Office in January or February.
