Teaching Excellence Awards
Two Teaching Excellence Awards to be awarded in the spring of 2017. One award for a full-time faculty member and a second award for an adjunct or part-time faculty member.
Each of the awardees will receive an award of $500.00. Take this opportunity to acknowledge those who have enhanced student learning!
Nominees must be current faculty who have completed at least three years at the college. (An awardee is not eligible for the same award more than once in seven years.)
Nominations may come from faculty, students, administrators and alumnae/i (no self-nominations). Nominators are urged to resubmit nominations the following year(s) for non-awardees.
Each nominator should submit a "letter of recommendation" to the Vice President for Academic Affairs (VPAA) of Ursuline College, emphasizing at least a few of the "Criteria for Teaching" listed in the College's Faculty Handbook by April 3, 2017. The criteria are as follows:
Each nominee will be asked to submit information in support of their nomination.
The nominating committee, whose charge it will be to recommend the awardees to the Vice President for Academic Affairs, will consist of the following:
Neither the number of nomination letters on behalf of a particular nominee nor the writing style of the letters will determine the decisions by the nominating committee; rather the decisions will be made in terms of how adequately a few of the criteria are addressed in the letters.
The awards will be announced during the spring semester and presented as part of the following November's Founder's Day festivities.

Student learning is the hallmark of the mission of Ursuline College. That mission is accomplished first and foremost by good teaching - teaching that strives for greater and greater excellence.
Teaching excellence has been recognized on our campus for a long time. by inaugurating the annual teaching excellence award in 2003 for a full-time faculty member, we wanted to honor all the excellent teaching that has taken place here at Ursuline College since 1871, especially the excellent teaching going on now.
