We are writing to announce the nomination process for the 2020-2021 Collegiate Teaching Awards. These awards are important for the individual winners, their departments, and for the College as a whole as an endorsement of the high value of excellent teaching in CLAS.

The Collegiate Teaching Awards recognize faculty for teaching excellence over a three-year period. All tenure-track, instructional track, and clinical-track faculty members holding a minimum 50% appointment, are eligible to be nominated. This award can only be won once, but previous nominees who did not receive an award are eligible for re-nomination. 

  1. Departments may submit no more than one nomination.  Please propose your nominee by forwarding their name to Gabriella McDermott (gabriella-mcdermott@uiowa.edu), Teaching Awards Committee staff, by Friday, December 17, 2021.
  2. The deadline for receipt of all nomination materials is Wednesday, February 9, 2022. The instructions for Nominations for the Collegiate Teaching Awards is located at http://clas.uiowa.edu/faculty/faculty-awards-memorials (Faculty Awards & Memorials).

Selection of six Collegiate Teaching Award winners will be made by the CLAS Teaching Awards Committee, and the Committee seeks a wide selection of nominations from across the college.

We encourage departments to use an inclusive nomination process involving a diverse and broadly representative group of students, faculty members, and administrators to identify outstanding faculty members with sustained records of teaching excellence and commitment to student learning.  

Each award carries a $2,000 honorarium.
