Celebrating Academic Excellence.

If you visit the lower level of UA BookStores SUMC, you'll notice a vibrant blue plaque carrying the names of more than one hundred and thirty names. These are the past and present students and faculty members who have been named UA's Pillars of Excellence. The display signifies the amazing academic accomplishments of UA's Honors students, UA Regent's Professors, University Distinguished Professors, University Distinguished Outreach Professors and Distinguished Scholars. A perpetual plaque hosts the history of this annual recognition, and portraits of last year's honorees grace the walls surrounding the display.

Each Spring, UA BookStores and The University of Arizona's Executive Office of the President partner to recognize these individuals and their outstanding contributions to academic excellence with a formal event featuring guest speakers that include the university's Provost and leadership from within the Division of Student Affairs and the BookStores.
