The faculty at Western Kentucky University are committed individuals who are constantly giving their time to assist students in preparing for their future. The Alumni Association provides awards to faculty to show appreciation for all of their efforts. Each year, four outstanding faculty awards are given for Public Service, Research, Teaching, and Advising. Each recipient receives a $1000 honorarium from the Alumni Association and the awards are presented at the Faculty Convocation at the beginning of each academic year.
