Faculty Awards

Generally, two awards, valued at $1,500 each, are made annually to honour and recognize distinguished teaching on campus and to provide incentive and encouragement for achieving excellence in this field.

A faculty member may win the award only once in 10 years. Past applicants may be considered but must be re-nominated.
