Celebration of Faculty Excellence

2019 Celebration of Faculty Excellence

Once a year the faculty of South Dakota State University come together to celebrate and recognize successes through the Celebration of Faculty Excellence event.

The day begins with faculty presentations and discussions at the Sewrey Colloquium and a Faculty Showcase to share research, scholarship and creative activities.  The prestigious David Fee Memorial Lecture offers the opportunity for an esteemed colleague to share his or her scholarly expertise.  A reception concludes the afternoon activities and provides a social time to meet new colleagues and deepen professional friendships.  The highlight of the day is the evening banquet and awards program where faculty are recognized for outstanding performance.
