The University Committee on Teaching Awards is seeking nominations from students, alumni, faculty and staff members for several campuswide awards that will honor professors and graduate teaching assistants in a variety of categories.

Among the awards is the UNC Systems Board of Governors’ Award for Excellence in teaching, which will be given to a tenured faculty member for exceptional teaching on the undergraduate level over a sustained period of time. Other awards recognize post-baccalaureate instructors and graduate teaching assistants who have displayed excellence in teaching.
The Mentor Award for Lifetime Achievement acknowledges lifetime contributions to teaching, learning and mentoring beyond the classroom and is not limited to traditional faculty.
