Wanted: Outstanding Teacher Award nominations

January 23, 2015 | Events, UToday, Alumni
By Staff

Take a few minutes and recognize that teacher, the one who inspired you, challenged you, encouraged you, and motivated you to be your best.

Nominations are being accepted for the Outstanding Teacher Awards through Thursday, Feb. 26, at 5 p.m.

For the 40th year, the University and the UT Alumni Association will honor the best teachers. 

Students, alumni, faculty and staff are asked to nominate teachers who exemplify excellence.

The online nomination form is at utoledo.edu/offices/provost/outstandingteacher.

Any full-time faculty member who has not received the Outstanding Teacher Award is eligible; a list of past winners is online with the nomination form.

The outstanding teachers are selected by a committee of UT faculty members who have won the honor and a student representative. The committee reviews nominations, and their deliberations are confidential; no one outside the group knows the content of the nominations or the identity of the nominators.

The content of the supporting statement from the nominator weighs heavily in the evaluation of candidates. Nominators are asked to give specific examples that demonstrate the nominee’s ability as an outstanding teacher.

Awards will be presented at the UT Outstanding Awards Reception Monday, April 27, at 5:30 p.m. in the Student Union Ingman Room.

For more information on nominations, contact Amanda Kessler of the UT Alumni Relations Office at 419.530.7859 or at amanda.schwartz@utoledo.edu>/a>.
