Excellence in Teaching Awards


Nominations are solicited from College of Arts and Sciences alumni
and recipients are selected based on the responses from these former students.

An award is given in each of the three college divisions to recognize exemplary service in the classroom and beyond. A fourth category of Instructional Academic Staff (IAS) was added in 2011.

Established in 1985 by The College of Arts and Sciences Dean's Student Advisory Committee.
