Faculty Teaching Awards

Professor Smader Lavie

The Office of the Executive Vice President and Provost issues a call for nominations each Fall for several awards that honor excellent teaching. Please note that for the 2017-2018 awards cycle we have made some changes. Most notably, this year, we have discontinued the Faculty Mentoring Award; however, we have increased the monetary prize for our All-University Awards and the Excellence in Education Abroad Award. The process and documentation for all other awards remains the same.

The Teaching Awards Committee offers these useful suggestions gathered over years’ experience reading nominations.

Each year, the Office of Graduate and Postdoctoral Affairs administers All-University Graduate Teaching Assistant Awards. Departments are invited to nominate one or more candidates for a graduate teaching award. From the pool of nominations, a faculty selection committee chooses fifteen winners.

Completed nomination dossiers for all faculty awards must be delivered by 5:00 pm, Monday, February 5, 2018 to the Provost’s Office, 1709 University Avenue, (Booker House), ATTN: Elyse Smith 434-924-6681 es9pk@virginia.edu.
