The Lionel Trilling Book Award has been awarded annually by the Academic Awards Committee of CCSC since 1976.

Named for Lionel Trilling, one of Columbia's legendary professors, the award is given to a faculty member who teaches in the College in recognition of a book published in the previous calendar year. Members of the awards committee read and review all of the recent scholarly book-length publications of the faculty.

The winner of the Trilling Award has traditionally been recognized in conjunction with the winner of the Mark Van Doren Award for teaching.

Edward Said and Andrew Delbanco are the only professors to have won the award twice.

The only professors to have won both the Van Doren and Trilling awards are Fritz Stern, Robert Murphy, Caroline Bynum, Wm. Theodore de Bary, and Carol Gluck.
