Distinguished Teaching Award & Award of Distinction | Kent State Stark | Kent State University

Distinguished Teaching Award & Award of Distinction

Kent State University at Stark students, faculty, staff and alumni are invited to submit nominations for the Distinguished Teaching Award for full-time faculty and the Award of Distinction for adjunct (part-time) faculty at Kent State Stark.

Each spring these awards are presented to a full-time faculty and an adjunct faculty member for his or her superior classroom teaching. Award recipients will be announced during the first week of May. A selection committee consisting of Kent State Stark faculty and students will choose the recipients. 

The following criteria is used in the selection process:

  • Comprehensive knowledge of his or her field
  • Effectiveness in organizing and presenting material
  • Ability to stimulate thinking and develop understanding in students
  • Ability to arouse student interest
  • Demonstrated resourcefulness
  • Concern for students

These awards are not popularity contests. Simply submitting a faculty member's name is not enough. Only those nominations which include at least 50 words of supportive information will be forwarded to the selection committee.

We will begin taking nominations for the 2019 awards in January 2019.

Questions about the 2019 nomination process can be directed to:

Selection Committee Chair
