Outstanding Teaching Award
Each year, the University Honors Student Association (UHSA) in conjunction with the University Honors Program (UHP) recognize one Honors faculty member for teaching excellence.
Every spring semester, a UHSA subcommittee distributes to UHP participants a list of eligible professors (those who taught Honors courses the previous spring and fall). Honors students are then invited to nominate the instructor they feel is most deserving of the award; each endorsement must be accompanied by a personal statement describing who is being nominated and why the student is supporting that particular professor. The subcommittee meets to count all the entries and to determine the top three candidates. The voting process then begins in April, and the winner is presented with a certificate at the Spring Honors Graduation Ceremony in May.
