Everette Swinney Faculty Senate Excellence in Teaching Award

Each year the Faculty Senate recognizes the Piper Professor nominee and two runners-up with the Everette Swinney Faculty Senate Excellence in Teaching Award, for which awardees receive an honorarium and a plaque. In May 1996 the Faculty Senate voted to name the Faculty Senate Excellence in Teaching Award in honor of former senator and longtime senate chair Dr. Everette Swinney. Dr. Swinney served on the senate sixteen years, and eight terms as senate chair.
