About the College of Business Distinguished Teaching Award
In the fall semester, business students nominate the faculty member who has made the most positive impact on their educational experience.
The Scholarships, Honors, and Awards faculty committee then reviews the nominees’ teaching philosophy and syllabi, and selects the winner.
The Distinguished Teaching Award is presented to a tenured or tenure-track professor. This person’s name is forwarded to the Senior Vice
Chancellor for Academic Affairs Office as the college's selection for the College Distinguished Teaching Award.
