The Office of the Provost at UMBC established a faculty award program to recognize excellence among tenured faculty in all three colleges. Awardees were selected based on the promise and strength of their scholarship and teaching at UMBC.

The COEIT Dean’s Office established the Staff Award for Superior Service to recognize staff achievements and contributions to COEIT and to UMBC.

The Diane M. Lee Endowment for First Year Experience was created to support and recognize instructional faculty and staff for their work with students during their year of transition to UMBC.
