The Fogelman College affords its professors several award programs and chances for promotion.  The Suzanne Downs Palmer Professorships Program, through the generosity of Fogelman College alumnus Dan Palmer, recognizes outstanding individual faculty contributions to achieving the mission of the Fogelman College in the categories of Teaching, Research, and Service.  The annual best paper judging recognizes the success of College faculty members when they have made significant research contributions to their discipline.  And, of course, professors can be promoted and awarded tenure at appropriate career junctures.  See this year’s award winners and those promoted in this article.
