UNIVERSITY OF WISCONSIN River Falls
Excellence in teaching is valued above all endeavors at the University of Wisconsin-River Falls. To recognize this essential mission, the university initiated the Distinguished Teaching Award in 1965. It is the most prestigious honor bestowed on campus. Chosen by graduating seniors and recent graduates, our distinguished teaching recipients represent talented and caring educators–teachers who make a difference. The recognition wall honors that select group of individuals who have demonstrated excellence in their profession.
"The award originated as a grant to the State University System from the Johnson Foundation. Formerly given every other year, an additional grant from the Murphy Foundation has made it possible for each of the nine state universities to make the award annually," according to the fall 1970 WSU-RF Falcon Features.
Funding is currently provided by the UW-River Falls Foundation.
