Plumeri Awards: Passion, Vision, Leadership

Joseph J. Plumeri ’66, D.P.S. ’11 established this eponymous award in 2009 to advance the work of exceptional faculty members and to encourage them to engage students in their scholarly endeavors. As of 2019, 195 recipients have benefited from his generosity, enhancing their teaching, research and mentorship. Recipients of this prestigious award undergo a highly competitive formal selection process and are chosen based on their contributions and accomplishments in the areas of discovery, scholarship and teaching. In 2019, the award was re-imagined to include recognition of an outstanding coach or staff member in W&M Athletics.
