In the spring of every year, faculty members and their spouses come together to celebrate the teaching efforts of faculty at BYU-Idaho. The  Best Practices Committee organizes the evening's program to uplift and inspire faculty in their teaching efforts. 

Please plan to spend a wonderful evening with us as we celebrate you, the great faculty of BYU-Idaho.

The date for the 2019 Faculty Banquet is Thursday, June 13 in the MC Grand Ballroom.


The Distinguished Faculty Award honors veteran, full-time faculty who have given outstanding service to BYU-Idaho. Nominations are solicited at large (generally from fellow faculty members) and reviewed by the  Best Practices Committee and approved by President's Council. The award is traditionally presented to 3-5 individuals at the All Employee Banquet in the fall. Please consider nominating those instructors who have shown a consistent effort to improve their teaching and learning, who are innovators in the classroom and who demonstrate campus citizenship. This should be someone with at least 10 years or more of service and who is continually growing in the work they do.
