Teacher of the Year

The Teacher of the Year Award is given annually to recognize and emphasize excellence in teaching. Other scholarly activities such as research and publication records may be considered in the selection process, but the main emphasis will be on teaching excellence as judged by faculty and students. The awardee will represent the college for the university’s Eldon J. Gardner Professor of the Year award. 

The recipient will be recognized at the CHaSS Awards Ceremony. One winner will be selected to compete as the CHaSS representative for the university’s Eldon J. Gardner Professor of the Year Award.
