Each September, FASS acknowledges four to six outstanding teaching performances in undergraduate and graduate programs, (excluding the university courses for which a separate award is given by the University). The faculty member receiving the FASS teaching award is allocated an additional 500 USD for travels to conferences or visits abroad to academic institutions. The recipients are a small subset of a large FASS family dedicated to teaching; we thank all faculty members for their sustained efforts and investments on the quality of instruction in this institution.
The awards are determined each year by a committee consisting of undergraduate program coordinators or representatives. The committee takes into consideration all sources of information such as course evaluations by the students and program evaluations by the graduating class, student supervision as well as new course development and contributions to the interdisciplinary curricula at FASS. Recipients of the award will be excluded from consideration for the next year.
