Nominations for Excellence in Teaching Awards due Oct. 10

AwardsThe 2019-2020 Excellence in Teaching Awards process is now accepting nominations from UNCSA faculty, students and alumni, of faculty members who are making an exceptional impact on teaching.

The award carries a $2,500 stipend, a formal citation, and extensive public recognition. Recipients of this award, who have been teaching at UNCSA for at least seven years, are then considered for the UNC Board of Governors award that recognizes excellent and exceptional teaching over a sustained period. The one institutional BOG award honoree receives a $12,500 stipend, a commemorative bronze medallion, and special recognition at UNCSA’s commencement exercises. Both awards are prestigious distinctions for individuals whose extraordinary efforts have made UNCSA a better place.
