These awards are an opportunity for UWL students to nominate individuals for a teaching excellence award. It is designed to recognize and celebrate an instance of excellent teaching by the nominee or nominees.

Generally, 6 awards are made each year across the University. The Provost presents successful individuals with a plaque in recognition of their excellent academic practice.

Process

Nominations will be open through the end of March. Any student may submit a nomination. Each student may nominate more than one person, but each nomination should be submitted separately.

Evaluation and Award Process

Department Chairs will receive the student submissions and endorse the nominations. The Dean of each college will collect the endorsements and forward a list of up to 6 nominations to the Provost's Office. College nominations will be considered by a selection panel which will include members of the Provost's office, the Director of the Center for Advancing Teaching & Learning, a student representative, and others. Preference is given to nominees who have not won previously.
