Deadline is June 30! Nominate Your Favorite Faculty Member for the Outstanding Teaching Award
Honor that unforgettable faculty member and share your favorite classroom memories of how he or she inspired you — submit a nomination for the Outstanding Teaching Award today.
Sponsored by the University Teaching Council, the Outstanding Teaching Award is intended to honor outstanding teaching by nontenure-track and part-time faculty at Kent State University. The awards parallel the Distinguished Teaching Awards sponsored by the Kent Alumni Association: Every year, three Kent faculty members will be honored with awards of $1,500 each for their outstanding achievements in teaching.
But first they must be nominated, and that is up to you.
- A faculty member must have been on a nontenure-track or part-time contract at the Kent Campus or any Regional Campus of the university for a minimum of five consecutive years (annually, not necessarily every semester), including the current academic year. (Returning emeriti are excluded.)
- Those receiving the awards must be on contract during the semester (fall 2011) in which the awards are presented.
- Those who received an Outstanding Teaching Award previously are not eligible.
You can nominate your favorite professor NOW by visiting the online form. www.kent.edu/utc/teaching_award. Deadline for nominations is June 30.
