Spring Hill College recognizes outstanding faculty for their contributions in teaching, research, and service through the following awards:

The Edward B. Moody, S.J., Teacher of the Year Award is made annually to the professor who, in the judgment of a committee composed of a broad cross-section of the academic community, has displayed excellence in the fulfillment of the teaching mission of the college.  

The Dawson Award alternates recognizing Spring Hill College faculty members for their research and service each year:

    • The Dawson Research Award is made to the professor who, in the judgment of a faculty committee, has demonstrated excellence in scholarship. 
    • The Dawson Service Award is made to the professor who, in the judgment of a faculty committee, has displayed excellent service to the College.

The Mayer and Arlene Mitchell and Abraham A. Mitchell Scholarship Grant was established in 1985 through the generosity of the Mitchell family of Mobile to recognize and encourage new and ongoing academic scholarship and faculty development.

The annual grant is awarded on a competitive basis to a faculty member, who, in the judgment of the Provost and the Faculty Development and Welfare Committee, with the Mitchells’ approval, most desires to better serve Spring Hill College in improving his or her knowledge in a chosen field of expertise.
