Nominations Sought for Teaching Awards

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.

The committee, chaired by sociology Professor Barbara Entwisle, who also is director of the Carolina Population Center, will accept nominations until 5 p.m. Oct. 1.

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.

More information about the awards and nominating forms is available on the Web.
