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:
- 1-2 page letter of nomination.
- A one-page cover letter from the Chair (or the DUS or DGS if the Chair is not nominating).
- No more than two additional letters of support (1-2 pages each) from faculty and/or students.
- A 1-2 personal statement on teaching
- No more than 2 sample course syllabi
- A numerical summary of course evaluations for the past four semesters. You may also include written comment excerpts (not to exceed 2 pages).
Please send nomination packets to firstname.lastname@example.org in PDF format in a single email. A committee appointed by the Dean will select the recipients of the Award.
