The School of Art and Art History's Annette Stott has earned the 2020 Faculty Service Award. She is currently in her third year as director of the DU-Iliff Joint Doctoral Program in the Study of Religion, and she holds many leadership positions, including art history graduate advisor and chair of the art history admissions committee.

Stott teaches the history of American art with an emphasis on the 19th and 20th centuries. She takes a racially and ethnically inclusive approach and has a particular interest in women in art and the intersection of American religions and art. 

In her years as director of the School of Art & Art History, Stott oversaw major transitions in technology and received grants to digitize the School's slide collection and enhance studio equipment. She also helped develop and manage the Pre-Art Conservation Program and has built a network of conservation specialists that enrich the student experience. 

"Annette is a scholar dedicated to the University, its students and faculty. An individual not satisfied with simply being a caretaker, but one who consistently improves this place in terms of diversity, career experiences and opportunities," said Annabeth Headrick, director of the School of Art and Art History and associate professor of art history
