Loyola recognizes professors by choosing one every year to receive the Dux Academicus award, the highest honor a professor can receive for excellence in teaching and scholarship. Recipients demonstrate an ability to impart knowledge and wisdom of the humanities, sciences, or the professions to students in a manner consistent with the unique philosophy of Loyola as a Jesuit institution of academic excellence. All Dux Academicus recipients will receive a plaque and a cash award. In addition, portraits of recipients are installed on the third floor of the Monroe Library in the Dux Academicus Corner outside of the stairwell.
