TEACHING, RESEARCH, AND SERVICE
East Tennessee State University's mission includes the broad triad of teaching, research, and service. Each year the University accords special recognition - through a Distinguished Faculty Award - for three distinguished faculty members whose academic careers represent respectively distinctive and exemplary achievement in each of those areas of its mission.
Recipients of the three distinguished faculty awards emerge each year from a rigorous selection process. Each award carries with it a plaque, a medallion, and a stipend of $5,000 made possible by the priority placed on excellence and by the generosity of those benefactors who comprise the ETSU Foundation.
