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 Award through Sunday, Feb. 26, at midnight.
This will be the 42nd year the University and the UT Alumni Association will recognize faculty members for their outstanding dedication to teaching.
All full-time faculty members who have not received the award in the past are eligible for this honor.
Up to six winners will be chosen by a group of past recipients and a Student Government representative, and all committee deliberations and the content of nominations remain confidential.
Recipients will receive a cash award of $1,500 and recognition by the University, the UT Alumni Association and President Sharon L. Gaber.
Nominations should include specific examples that demonstrate the nominee’s ability as an outstanding teacher as the supporting statements in the nomination weigh heavily during the evaluation.
“The faculty at UT are hardworking and should be recognized for the time they invest to help their students learn the skills to succeed after graduation,” said Amanda Schwartz, associate director of UT alumni relations.

Winners will be recognized at the UT Outstanding Awards Reception Monday, April 17, at 5:30 p.m. in the Thompson Student Union Ingman Room.
