Outstanding Teaching Award for New Faculty‌


  1. Rationale for the Award

    This award is given to a newer member of the faculty to recognize outstanding teaching. Because effective teaching is the most important contribution of faculty to the University’s educational mission, development of a high level of effectiveness early in a faculty member’s service is worthy of recognition by the University.

  2. Eligibility and Selection‌

Past recipients of the award are ineligible to receive the award more than once. No self-nominations may be made.
