Awards and Recognition
Ernest A. Calloway Teaching Award
Each year, the Society of African American Studies awards the Ernest A. Calloway Teaching Award to a University faculty member whose efforts in the classroom reflected Calloway's commitment to social justice, diversity and inclusion.
The award, named for the late Saint Louis University professor, was established by SLU alumnus Brian Shelton. The award is given annually during Sankofa, the African American graduate recognition ceremony held during pre-commencement activities.
