Faculty Awards

Excellence in Teaching Awards

Each year at graduation, an award is given to a full-time faculty member chosen by his or her peers for outstanding teaching. Significant participation in discipline-related organizations, curriculum development, implementation of innovative teaching strategies, and commitment to students both in and out of the classroom are the primary measures considered in determining the recipient of the award.
