Trustees' Teaching Award

Trustees' Teaching Award

Each spring Trustees' Teaching Awards are made to honor outstanding teaching during the previous academic year.  Winners of the award for the School of Education will be chosen by an ad hoc committee appointed by the School’s Faculty Development Committee. Please note: Members of the Faculty Development Committee who are nominated for a Trustees’ Teaching Award will not serve on the committee that makes recommendations for awards.
