The Teaching Prize for Undergraduate Education recognizes outstanding teaching not only in undergraduate subjects with large enrollments (such as those that satisfy the General Institute Requirements in science), but also in upper-level science subjects in which enrollments are smaller.
For the Teaching Prize for Graduate Education, preference will be given to nominees who teach mainstream subjects in which fundamental principles of the relevant fields are presented. Such courses typically provide the basis for advanced education and research and prepare students for professional careers.
Nomination letters from either faculty or students are welcome during the Spring semester of each academic year. Letters should indicate the name of the nominee, course taught, and reasons for nomination. At least one letter is required for consideration, but additional letters will strengthen the nomination.
