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.

More information about the awards and nominating forms is available on the Web at the Office of the Provost.
