Each year an award of $200 will be given to both a tenured and a non-tenured faculty member to recognize excellence in teaching and service to students.

By the end of the second full week of classes, the dean will issue a memo to all faculty and students inviting nominations. There is no set criteria for the nomination letter. Faculty and students should feel free to include a variety of supporting information in their nomination letter.

The committee, consisting of award recipients from the previous year plus three students selected by SGA, will meet at least ten days before honors convocation to select the two recipients.

The committee selects the two recipients based on the nomination letters and any other information made available to them.

Faculty can receive the award once every five years.

Recipients will be recognized at fall honors convocation.
