Krista Ruggles Chosen to Receive Faculty Excellence Award at UVU

Triple Gator Krista Ruggles (B.A. ‘98, M.Ed. ‘99, PH.D. ‘16) recently received a Faculty Excellence Award at Utah Valley University. The faculty who receive this award have demonstrated their support for UVU’s mission of student success through exceptional teaching as well as demonstrated excellence in scholarship and service.

One Faculty Excellence Award is given in each school/college for every 25 full-time tenured/tenure-track faculty members after the first 25. This year, it was extended to include Lecturer Award winners.

UVU presents these awards to acknowledge the achievements of outstanding faculty, demonstrate exemplary standards of academic professionalism to the community, and encourage faculty to pursue the highest levels of excellence in all aspects of their work.

“As a three-time UF graduate I miss the community,” Ruggles said, “but know we all have important work to do across this country.”

The UF College of Education is proud of Dr. Ruggles and all of the work our EduGators continue to do around the world.
