College of William and Mary law professor Paul Marcus and marine science professor Mark Patterson are among 12 Virginia educators to receive the Commonwealth’s Outstanding Faculty Award. The award recognizes professors who have demonstrated excellence in teaching, research and public service. Since the award’s inception in 1987, 35 professors from the College have received the honor — more than any other university in the state.
“William and Mary has a powerful tradition of being home to Outstanding Faculty Award winners,” College President Taylor Reveley said. “This is because our faculty is compellingly good, as Paul and Mark make so clear. We are very proud of both of them.”
This year’s honorees will receive their awards during a luncheon ceremony Feb. 18.
