Up to five awards of $2,000, before tax, will be available for recognition of outstanding teaching, and one award of $2,000, before tax, will be available for recognition of outstanding advising. Award candidates will be recommended to the Provost by a selection committee comprised of previous year’s winners, and a student from each of the three colleges. The committee will only recommend individuals who have been judged to be outstanding in teaching or advising. For example, the committee should not forward any recommendations if it feels that none of the applicants are truly deserving of the award. Where feasible, the awardees for awards for teaching will include a faculty member from each of the three colleges.
Award Amount: $2,000
Award Eligibility Criteria
Awards will be made to individuals who have been judged to be distinguished in either teaching or advising. Individuals receiving the awards will be recognized for their commitment to their students, and exceptional performance in teaching or advising as shown by evaluation of those skills by both students and peers, and evidence of activities in which the individuals have been engaged in the promotion of high quality teaching or advising in the department or college.
Selection will be limited to full-time faculty and advisors in regular faculty lines (excluding visiting and adjunct faculty and workforce personnel) who have been employed in that capacity at the University for at least three years prior to the year of award. For example, a faculty member applying for the award in 2009-10 would be eligible if he/she were employed as a full-time faculty member on or before August 8, 2006. Once receiving an award, a recipient is ineligible to reapply until three full academic years have passed. For example, a faculty member who received an award in the 2005-06 academic year would be eligible to reapply for the award in the 2009-10 academic year. Eligibility will be verified by the Provost’s Office.

Candidates for consideration may be identified through nomination by a second party (e.g., faculty or student) or by direct application of the individual. All candidates will be asked to submit a full professional application portfolio, which should be contained in a 3-ring binder no larger than 3-inches deep. The portfolio is to include the following:
