Joseph Glover, Provost and Senior Vice President for Academic Affairs
I am pleased to announce that Dr. Scott K. Powers, Distinguished Professor, Department of Applied Physiology and Kinesiology in the College of Health and Human Performance, has been awarded the University of Florida Teacher-Scholar of the Year award for 2016-2017.
Originating in 1960, this is the University of Florida’s most prestigious and oldest faculty award. It provides an honorarium of $6,000 in addition to other appropriate recognition. In making the award, the Award Committee selects a faculty member who demonstrates distinguished achievement in both teaching and scholarly activity (manifested by scholarly research, creative writing, original works of art, etc.) and visibility within and beyond the university.
Dr. Powers and the winners of the University Level Undergraduate Teacher of the Year, Undergraduate Faculty/Mentor of the Year and Professional Advisor of the Year Awards were recognized along with the College level winners of those categories, at a reception hosted by President Fuchs on April 6, 2017.
