The campus created the BFA Excellence Awards in the early 1980s to recognize outstanding work and concerted effort in advancing the mission of the University and the academy at large. All members of the Boulder faculty, including instructors, are eligible for nomination.
These prestigious awards are made possible through financial support from the chancellor, enabling the BFA to grant each recipient a $3,000 monetary award.
The Hazel Barnes Prize is the largest and most prestigious single faculty award funded by the University of Colorado Boulder. It was established in 1991 by former Chancellor James Corbridge in honor of Philosophy Professor Emerita Hazel Barnes to recognize "the enriching interrelationship between teaching and research."
Hazel Barnes, one of our campus' most accomplished scholars, received a BFA Excellence in Teaching Award in 1983.
