UTC Teaching Awards

The University Teaching Council offers two opportunities to recognize the amazing instructors we have at Kent State University:

Outstanding Teaching Award

The Outstanding Teaching Award (OTA) is the highest teaching award accorded to non tenure-track and part-time faculty at Kent State University. The award recognizes three Kent State faculty members annually and parallels the Distinguished Teaching Awards sponsored by the Kent Alumni Association.

Faculty & Instructor Recognition

Students are encouraged to nominate their instructors for an Instructor Recognition Award. These awards are an opportunity to highlight all Kent State instructors who have been motivated, engaged, and inspired their students. Nominees will receive a certificate of recognition at the annual UTC Conference.
