Vote for the Outstanding Teacher Award


Do you have a professor that is exceptionally outstanding? Show your appreciation!

If you will be graduating in December 2009, either undergraduate or graduate, you are invited to nominate an outstanding professor. From now until December 11th at 4:00 p.m., students can nominate their favorite professor for the Outstanding Teaching Award, sponsored by the Teaching and Learning Enhancement Center (TALE).

Two professors will be selected by a panel after careful consideration of the entrees. Nominations will be combined with May/August graduate nominations and the two winners will be announced at the May 2010 graduation ceremonies.

The two selected professors will receive a plaque that is awarded to them, and their name will be added to a plaque in the TALE Center. The professors also receive a monetary award that may be used toward any professional development, including, but not limited to, attending a conference, furthering education, or supplies that will enhance their programs.

Students who nominated previous award winning teachers expressed that the professors are enthusiastic and have excellent instructing style, sincere concern with students’ success, and have served as role models as professionals for students. The panel for this selection consists of a professor from each college that has previously received this award and a co-chairperson from the TALE Center.

All nominations and essays will be kept entirely confidential. A professor may only receive the award once every ten years.
