Lifetime Achievement Award

Recognizing outstanding contributions by faculty in health science education, the Lifetime Achievement Award is among the highest honors Washington University faculty can achieve. The awards were established in 2021 by the Academy of Educators to honor a faculty member who has shown a lifelong commitment to education and demonstrates excellence in one or more domains of educational service, leadership, or scholarship. Current nominees should be at the Associate Professor or Professor level with at least twenty years service as faculty in an academic teaching setting.
