Colleagues honored at virtual CALS Awards ceremony

Professorship and CALS Award recipients display the plaques and frames that were mailed to their homes in advance of the ceremony.

Last week nearly 120 faculty, staff, friends, and supporters of CALS attended the virtual CALS Awards ceremony. The speakers were together – physically distanced and masked with green Badger Badges – in order to present the highest honors for current faculty and staff in the college. Recipients of awards and professorships, along with other viewers participated from home. This unique hybrid approach to an event enabled donors to join in the celebration from as far as California. It was uplifting to hear about the vast accomplishments of our colleagues and see all of the congratulatory messages in the Zoom chat.

In the coming weeks, we will feature recipients of the awards in eCALS and on social media.

Here is a recording of the event:
