Mortar Board Logo

Every year the MUW Alumni Association and the MUW Star and Scepter Chapter of Mortar Board conduct a campus-wide election to select MUW’s Faculty Member of the Year. This Award, which is announced at graduation and includes a $1000 dollar check from the MUW Alumni Association, is highly coveted. It honors those faculty members who exhibit excellence in teaching, advising, and professional activities, in particular those who go beyond all expectations to support MUW’s students and academic programs.
