The University Committee on Teaching Awards is seeking nominations from students, alumni, faculty and staff members for several campuswide awards that will honor deserving professors and graduate teaching assistants in a variety of categories.
The committee, chaired by Jean DeSaix ’69 (MS) of the biology department, will accept nominations until 5 p.m. Oct. 1.
Among the awards is the UNC 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 superb 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 at the Office of the Provost.
