The UW System Board of Regents recently announced their call for nominations for both the Regents Teaching Excellence Awards for Individuals and Departments/Programs. The purpose of the Regents Teaching Excellence Awards is to recognize exemplary teaching by faculty, instructional academic staff, and departments/programs in the UW System. These awards reflect the UW System’s strong commitment to excellence and innovation in teaching and student learning. Two awards of $7,500 each will be made to faculty and/or instructional academic staff in recognition of outstanding career achievement (minimum of 10 years teaching experience) in the UW System. One $7,500 award will be made to an academic department, program, or other academic unit that demonstrates exceptional commitment to, and effectiveness in, teaching and learning. The funds for this award are expected to be used for further program enhancements, such as professional development or teaching-related supplies and expenses. UWM nominations should be sent to Cheryl Andres (firstname.lastname@example.org) by 5 p.m. on Friday, November 17. Guidelines and Selection Criteria.
