Trustees' Outstanding Teacher Award

In 1994, through the generosity of several members of the Board of Trustees and at the direction of the President, the Trustees' Outstanding Teacher Award was established. This award, which is given annually, recognizes outstanding accomplishments in classroom instruction and consists of a $5,000 honorarium.

The selection will be made based on evidence of sustained outstanding teaching as reflected by student evaluations from the last two years, peer evaluations and letters of support from colleagues, alumni and students.

The selection committee will consist of the following individuals:

  • G. P. "Bud" Peterson, Provost (Committee Chair)
  • Gary Gabriele, Vice Provost for Administration and Dean of Undergraduate Education
  • Charles Carletta, Secretary of the Institute and General Counsel
  • Professor Harry McLaughlin, Professor of Mathematical Sciences and winner of the 2003 Trustees' Award; and
  • Mike Borzumate, Grand Marshal

and will be charged with making a recommendation to the President who will make the final selection. All nominations will remain in effect for two years and should include the following information:

  1. Letter of Nomination
  2. Resume
  3. Letters of support from alumni, students, colleagues, and/or administrators.

Individual faculty or students are invited to submit nominations by March 8, 2004 to G. P. "Bud" Peterson, Provost. The Office of the Provost will solicit the student evaluation material from the appropriate department and/or school for all nominations received.
