Provost's Award for Sustained Teaching Excellence

In order to provide special recognition to instructors who have been nominated as finalists for the Distinguished Teaching Award four or more times, the Provost's Award for Sustained Teaching Excellence was established beginning in the spring of 2020. The Provost and Deans recognized that instructors consistently delivering exceptional instruction to their students over many years are worthy of special recognition. The award, which places recipients on par with the Distinguished Teaching Award, consists of a plaque and additional compensation presented at the Academy of Teaching Excellence banquet each spring.

Deans' Teaching Showcase

Each week of the spring semester, college deans identify outstanding instructors within their units for recognition in the Deans' Teaching Showcase. The thirteen nominees are announced one per week through the spring term. All thirteen are invited to an end-of-term luncheon at which they'll receive formal recognition and a small token of appreciation from the Center for Teaching and Learning. Beginning in 2017, Deans' Teaching Showcase winners are considered for additional university-wide awards in targeted areas.
