Each year several awards are given to faculty members who have distinguished themselves by their contributions to the University. The awards are:
Teaching Awards - The four teaching-related awards are Outstanding Faculty Mentor Teaching Award, Faculty Award for Innovative Teaching, Pohlhaus-Stracciolini Award for Teaching Excellence, and the Junior Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Staff Awards: Facultas Award - The Facultas Award is presented once each year (in December) by the Faculty Congress, on behalf of the faculty as a whole. The award should go to staff from a variety of areas to recognize their diverse contributions to the university community.
Villanova University was founded in 1842 by the Order of St. Augustine. To this day, Villanova’s Augustinian Catholic intellectual tradition is the cornerstone of an academic community in which students learn to think critically, act compassionately and succeed while serving others. There are more than 10,000 undergraduate, graduate and law students in the University’s six colleges.
