Faculty Excellence recently inducted 22 new members into the UCF Scroll & Quill Society, recognizing both creative and research achievements from faculty members whose careers span more than 10 years at UCF.

The Scroll and The Quill were separate societies in the 1980s at UCF; the scroll representing research achievement and the quill representing creative achievements such as published books and plays. In 2015, Faculty Excellence revamped the society, honoring legacy members and welcoming new faculty into this prestigious organization.

More than 60 faculty members and guests attended the Oct. 30 reception at the Burnett House.

“This society is a community of scholars who have continued to advance UCF’s transformational impact for at least a decade, inspiring students, fellow faculty and the community,” said Jana Jasinski, vice provost for Faculty Excellence.
