2020-2021 Collegiate Teaching Awards Nominations
I am 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 the faculty places on excellent teaching.
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.
- Departments may submit no more than one nomination. Please propose your nominee by forwarding their name to Peter Hubbard (firstname.lastname@example.org), Committee staff, by December 8, 2020. The College will contact the nominee with information about completing the process.
- The deadline for receipt of all nomination materials is Wednesday, February 3, 2021. Links to the Awards page and nomination materials are available at http://clas.uiowa.edu/faculty/faculty-awards-memorials (Faculty Awards & Memorials).
The authority for selecting six Collegiate Teaching Award winners belongs solely to the College, and the Teaching Award Committee seeks a wide selection of nominations from all parts of the faculty.
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.
