Provost's Awards for Scholarly Activity

By Life@TheU
The Provost recognized faculty achievements during the 23rd annual Provost's Awards for Scholarly Activity on Tuesday, April 2.

Life-changing discoveries and groundbreaking publications highlight only a portion of the work done by University of Miami faculty. Some faculty achievements are the result of a single matchless accomplishment, while others are the result of many years of dedication and inquiry. The annual Provost’s Award for Scholarly Activity (PASA) recognizes faculty on various scholarly paths who have demonstrated excellence in their field as researchers, gifted teachers, and mentors.

“One of the greatest days as a Provost is when we have the opportunity to come together to recognize and celebrate faculty achievements. The faculty achievements we are recognizing today constitute years of exploration and commitment. We are proud of all they have done to contribute to the University,” said Jeffrey Duerk, executive vice president for academic affairs and provost.

Joined by John Bixby, vice provost for research, and David Birnbach, executive vice provost for faculty affairs, Duerk and the leadership team shared that each of the faculty are nominated by their deans and are ultimately selected by a committee comprising previous PASA awardees. In addition to recognizing achievements, the award enables faculty to increase their scholarly activity through internal support, ultimately preparing them for the pursuit of external funding and opportunities to enhance the track of research at the University 

The PASA award is typically granted to three faculty members each year. This year, because of a tie during the committee's review process, there were four recipients.

Congratulations to recipients and nominees for the 2019 Provost’s Award for Scholarly Activity.
