OVC announces recipients of inaugural Outstanding Faculty–Commitment to Student Success Awards

March 16, 2023

The winners of the Ohio Valley Conference’s inaugural Outstanding Faculty–Commitment to Student Success Awards have been announced.

The awards were created by the provosts from each OVC member institution to recognize outstanding faculty at each of these institutions. The recipients were recently announced at the 2023 OVC Basketball Championship on March 4, 2023. Awards will be sent to each school so the winners can be honored on their own campus.

Each OVC member institution had the opportunity to nominate a faculty member with the rank of associate or full-time professor who has been employed at the institution for at least five years.

The criteria included impacts of students, contributions made to the department, university and curriculum development, consistent professional development as well as community involvement and institutional service. 

This year, USI faculty member Emily R. Holt, Clinical Professor of Dental Hygiene and Dental Assisting, was named to the list of winners. The list featured a faculty member from all 10 universities of the Ohio Valley Conference. 

Congratulations to Emily!
