Kent State University at Stark students, alumni, faculty and staff 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. View 2015 recipients.

  • Effectiveness in organizing and presenting material
  • Ability to stimulate thinking and develop understanding in students
  • Ability to arouse student interest
