Honoring our incredible faculty
May 4, 2023
Yesterday we celebrated the 2023 William T. Kemper Fellowships for Teaching Excellence, the highest teaching award given on our campus. Each year, Mizzou and Commerce Bank team up to honor MU faculty members who have a deep commitment to student success. This is the 33rd class of fellows since the awards were established in 1991 by the William T. Kemper Foundation.
During the ceremony, the five new fellows were celebrated by their families, school and college colleagues and past Kemper recipients. Before they received their golden apple award, each was introduced by a former student who shared the direct impact that faculty member had on them.
The Kemper Awards Ceremony marked the conclusion of our annual Faculty Excellence Week. This year, the celebration grew to include seven events recognizing a variety of faculty accomplishments, including book publications, prestigious awards and, of course, teaching excellence.
Each faculty member makes valuable contributions to our state and world. It was great coming together to celebrate all they do.
