RE: CLAS Nomination: 2017-18 President and Provost Awards for Teaching Excellence
I am writing to invite CLAS nominations for the 2017-18 President and Provost Award for Teaching Excellence. 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 President and Provost Awards for Teaching Excellence recognize faculty with a sustained high level of teaching excellence. These award winners are selected by the University-wide Council on Teaching. The award carries a $3000.00 honorarium.
Each College may forward up to three nominations on behalf of clinical-track or tenure track faculty and up to two nominations for those in lecturer, visiting faculty or adjunct faculty positions. This award is not restricted to a previous Collegiate Teaching Award recipient or nominee. The President & Provost Award for Teaching Excellence can be won only once.
Our Collegiate Teaching Awards Committee will review all CLAS nominations and select those to forward to the Council on Teaching. Please note the CLAS deadline of Wednesday, November 1, 2017 for receipt of nomination materials (one paper copy and one pdf copy to firstname.lastname@example.org) in 120 Schaeffer Hall.
