What We Do
Support and celebrate excellence
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Service to Students recognizes the exemplary work of our faculty and staff at Quinnipiac University. Each year, six distinguished members of our community are honored for their dedication to students and their significant contributions to Quinnipiac's evolution as the University of the Future.
The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Service to Students serves an important role in supporting President Judy Olian’s strategic plan and its four pillars — to build an institution-wide mindset that prepares graduates for 21st-century careers and leadership; to create an inclusive, excellence-driven community; to nurture and positively impact internal, local and global communities; and to foster lifelong connections and success.
To this end, the Excellence in Teaching Award and the Excellence in Service to Students Award reflect the highest professional standards at Quinnipiac. The university holds a formal celebration each fall to honor the recipients.
