Trustees' Outstanding Teacher Award


The Trustees' Outstanding Teacher Award was established in 1994 through the generosity of several members of the Board of Trustees. Given annually, this award recognizes outstanding accomplishments in classroom instruction. Selection is made based on evidence of sustained outstanding teaching as reflected by student evaluations, peer evaluations and letters of support from colleagues, alumni and students. Nominations are sought from the Rensselaer Community and reviewed by a selection committee, with final selection made by the President. The award is presented to the recipient by the Board of Trustees in September.

The 2007 awardee announced at the May 1 Faculty Recognition Dinner was:

Professor Mark Holmes
Mathematical Science
School of Science

He will officially receive his award at the September 2007 Board of Trustees meeting.
