The DTA recipient will receive an honorarium, recognition at the spring faculty recognition reception and at spring commencement, and is honored at the Awards of Excellence ceremony on the Seattle campus in June. Additionally, the recipient is traditionally the speaker at UW Bothell’s Convocation in September.

Outstanding Community-Engaged Scholar Award

The Outstanding Community-Engaged Scholar Award was created in 2020 by the Community Engagement Council.

The Outstanding Community-Engaged Scholar Award recipient will be recognized at Academic Affairs spring faculty recognition and spring commencement.  Award winners serve as role models to other faculty on campus, and will be asked to serve as a resource for other faculty and the campus community, and to participate in the spring Community Partnership Appreciation Luncheon.
