Each year we honor one of the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus’s greatest assets – our remarkable faculty – with the faculty awards. These accolades recognize superior accomplishments in teaching and leadership.
The awards are special not only because they acknowledge outstanding performance in our core areas as a university, but also because they are recognition by colleagues and students of this exemplary work.
In addition to the faculty excellence award winners listed below, we recognize Lori Sussel, PhD, winner of the Joseph Addison Sewall Award for exceptional contributions of leadership and vision to the CU Anschutz Medical Campus.
All faculty award winners will be recognized at the campus commencement ceremony on May 27.
