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. 

  1. Departments may submit no more than one nomination.  Please propose your nominee by forwarding their name to Peter Hubbard (peter-hubbard@uiowa.edu), Committee staff, by December 8, 2020. The College will contact the nominee with information about completing the process.
  2. 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.

Thank you.
