The Distinguished Teaching Award was established to recognize faculty who have contributed significantly to the intellectual life of the University through their teaching. Recipients of the award will have demonstrated their excellence as educators over a sustained period of time.
Criteria include the following:
A special University committee made up of faculty, students, alumni, and administrators convenes each spring to review the nominees submitted by each school and make final recommendations for the Distinguished Teaching Award. In making its selection, the committee wishes to recognize the diversity of the University and the diverse forms that teaching may take in the different schools of the University.
A list of the 2018-2019 members of the All-University Selection Committee may be found below.
Current and incoming committee members may obtain a more detailed description of their duties and the administrative process of the DTA by emailing the Office of Faculty Resources.
