Honoring Excellence 2018-02-27T13:20:19+00:00


Students on-campus continually impress staff in Residence Life, along with faculty and administrators at Texas A&M University, due to their academic achievements. We wanted a unique way to celebrate students’ hard work and accomplishments, as well as the faculty and staff who support them.

Honoring Excellence is a formal ceremony in which Texas A&M University students are given the opportunity to nominate faculty and staff members for awards and recognizes on-campus students who have demonstrated academic and leadership excellence, including those who achieve Distinguished Student status (Student Rule 11).

The Honoring Excellence awards are given to up to eight outstanding faculty and staff members each year who go above and beyond, both inside and outside the their classroom/positions, to impact student learning and academic success.
