AUBURN, Alabama – Auburn University honored its 2016-2017 Faculty Awards recipients Feb. 28 at The Hotel at Auburn University and Dixon Conference Center, recognizing some of the institution’s most innovative teachers, researchers and scholars for their unique and distinguished contributions to the university’s mission.

Presented annually, the Faculty Awards honor individuals and groups of faculty for excellence in teaching, research and outreach. Following a competitive review process, recipients are chosen by selection committees comprised of faculty, staff, students and alumni. The honorees Tuesday night were named in 2016.

“Once again, this year's recipients were selected from an outstanding group of talented faculty,” said Timothy Boosinger, provost and vice president for academic affairs. “These awards symbolize the exceptional contributions of our faculty members to Auburn’s mission and demonstrate their extraordinary service and dedication to advancing our university.”

Among the award winners was Dr. Richard Hansen of the Harrison School of Pharmacy. Hansen, professor and department head in Health Outcomes Research and Policy, received the Creative Research and Scholarship Award, alongside Michael Pindzola, professor in the Department of Physics.

The Creative Research and Scholarship Award recognizes faculty members who have distinguished themselves through research, scholarly works and creative contributions among the categories of fine arts, liberal arts, business, social/human sciences and sciences, biomedical sciences, engineering and agriculture.
