The Faculty Career Achievement Award was established in 2015, and during our Second Century Campaign, to recognize remarkable contributions across the scope of a career by a current tenured SMU faculty member to the teaching, scholarship and service missions of the University.
In extraordinary ways, spanning nearly four decades, Doctors Brettell and Fomby exemplify SMU’s scholarly and creative aspirations. They are precisely the type of faculty members who have – and will continue to – lead us in our pursuit of even greater academic quality.
