The Distinguished Faculty Award (DFA). With this award, the Academic Senate recognizes excellence in a professor’s area of expertise, such as teaching, counseling, work with students, etc. It also considers good college “citizenship,” i.e. contributions to college life outside the classroom or primary service area as secondary criteria. Candidates for the DFA must have been at the college for at least ten years. The Senate has tried to recognize a variety of people in a variety of areas and for a variety of efforts. The recipient list includes great lecturers, people who have reached out to their students in exceptional ways, and people who have developed tremendous programs. The DFA was first conferred in 1987.  DFA recipient photos are located in the Administration building lobby.
