Distinguished Teacher Program
The University Distinguished Teacher Program recognizes faculty members who are distinguished teachers. A faculty member identified as a University Distinguished Teacher receives an honorarium and prepares a course in an area of special interest and expertise. Where possible, the course is of wide interest, at the 100 or 200 level and meets a general education requirement. The course is widely advertised by the Administration and taught during the academic year following receipt of the award. During the year in which the course is offered, the Distinguished Teacher has available to him or her a budget to be used for enrichment in the area of the course at his or her discretion for travel to meetings, for a student assistant, for scholarly materials, for supplies, or for other relevant purposes.
