CALL FOR NOMINATIONS: Outstanding Teaching Awards

Each year, the University recognizes faculty and graduate students for outstanding teaching. We strongly encourage you to nominate deserving faculty members and graduate teaching assistants for distinguished teaching awards. The award is intended to identify and recognize individuals who demonstrate special dedication to student achievement and who are evincing meritorious success in their teaching.  In short, the awards emphasize the University’s commitment to the importance of teaching as its vital core mission in the Commonwealth, the nation, and the world.
