About the Award

Established in 2017, the Auburn University Parents’ Association Faculty and Staff Award identify outstanding faculty and staff who have had a positive impact on Auburn students or their families. Instilling the values of the Auburn Creed is an integral part of the Auburn experience, and these award recipients have both demonstrated the heart of what it means to be an Auburn person as well as encouraged it in others.

Honorees are nominated by the family of those they teach, mentor, support, and serve – the students. Families and students are encouraged to identify faculty or staff members who have been especially supportive or influential in promoting their success.
