Faculty and Staff Favorites

Congratulations, Class of 2019! 

Your teachers and staff here at Al Akhawayn University -- whether in your Schools or in the Language Center or in other University units -- play a central role in your education, as teachers, mentors, advisors, and more. Some are widely recognized, some are unsung heroes, and the best instructors can have lasting effects on students and remain lifelong friends. 

As part of Al Akhawayn University's continuing efforts to recognize excellence throughout our community, at the June 22nd   Commencement ceremony this year, the University will be honoring Class of 2019 Faculty and Staff Favorites. 

The 2019 Faculty and Staff Favorites will be members of the University faculty and staff, from any School or instructional unit, who are currently teaching or working at Al Akhawayn and who in the opinion of the graduating Class of 2019 have had the most positive impact on the most students in the Class, regardless of major, school, or concentration, during their time at the University. 

Please vote from the list of current faculty and Staff by visiting the link that will be coming soon.

 

Please note: 

1- Only members of the Class of 2019 may cast a vote for one faculty and one staff member. 

2- Only one vote for one staff and one faculty member per graduating student. 


Voting begins on May 31, 2019 at noon and will end on June 3, 2019 at midnight. 


Results will be announced during the Commencement Ceremony on June 15th, 2019
