Baylor University's Department of History is proud to recognize seven faculty members for Service Awards in 2022-2023.

Baylor University Service Awards were provided this year to recognize faculty and staff years of loyal service and contributions to the life of the University. Awards are given in five-year increments, beginning with year five. They honor anniversary milestones achieved during the preceding calendar year.

Recipients receive a recognition packet that includes a catalog from which they may select a gift to commemorate the occasion. An honoree can select the traditional Baylor service pin or a gift of their choice. Honorees are also recognized at a lunch each February.

The Department of History would like to congratulate and thank each of these faculty. All have made impactful contributions to the department and the university.
