Selected by the faculty Promotion and Tenure Committee and nominated by members of the campus community, the Kemp Award recognizes a faculty member who brings spirit, passion and scholarship to the art of teaching. Recipients are seen as indispensable to their discipline, enriching the University’s intellectual life within and beyond the classroom.
The current Kemp Award winner, Professor of History Tom Lutze, gives an address during The Kemp Foundation's Teaching Excellence Award Ceremony, which replaces the traditional Honors Day Convocation. Retiring faculty are also be honored.
