Vice Provost's Award for Outstanding Achievement
The Vice Provost's Award for Outstanding Achievement recognizes excellent performance by University of Missouri or Lincoln University campus or regional faculty or professional staff members in planning, conducting and evaluating a multiyear outreach program.
Two awards — one to a regional faculty member and one to a campus faculty member – are presented. Recipients receive a cash award in the amount of $1,000. A symbol of recognition is presented by the Vice Provost for Extension at a regional or campus event.
