Outstanding Teaching Awards
College of Arts & Sciences Outstanding Teaching Awards
Each year the College of Arts & Sciences gives four Outstanding Teaching Awards, one each in the divisions of Humanities, Social Sciences, Natural & Mathematical Sciences and one for lecturers. These Awards recognize excellence and outstanding contribution both in undergraduate and graduate teaching and in all aspects of teaching, not just class performance. All tenured, tenure-track,and lecturer faculty with full-time or primary appointments in the College are eligible for these Awards, except for those who have won this Award during the previous five years. Each A&S Outstanding Teaching Award carries a one-time stipend of $1,500.
Nominations are invited each spring from the faculty in the College and all University of Kentucky students. Nomination packets include:
- A letter of nomination.
- A cover letter from the Chair (if the Chair is not nominating).
- No more than two additional letters of support from faculty and/or students.,
- A packet of supporting materials, including a personal statement on teaching, sample course syllabi, and a sample of representative student evaluative comments. The contents of the packet must not exceed a total of thirty pages in length.
- Copies of numerical course evaluations of the nominees’ teaching for the previous three semesters. (The nominee may submit alternative evaluation forms for courses taught during these semesters for which the standard numerical evaluation form was not used).
Please send nomination packets to A&S Dean's Office, c/o Abbie Loynachan, 202 POT 0027. A committee appointed by the Dean will select the recipients of the Award.
