More Information About the Award
Every Spring, the University of Memphis Alumni Association honors four outstanding faculty with the presentation of the Distinguished Teaching Award. Recipients receive individual plaques and awards, and their photographs are displayed in the Administration Building next to the large plaque honoring all those who have previously received the award. The Distinguished Teaching Award is funded and sponsored by the University of Memphis Alumni Association.
The selection process begins with nominations by U of M full-time faculty, students, and alumni. The Distinguished Teaching Award Committee, which includes former award winners, will select a number of nominees for further consideration. The Committee will also request letters of evaluation from each finalist's administrative head. Then the Distinguished Teaching Award Committee will review all pertinent data, including the student evaluations of all courses taught within the past three years, to select the award winners.
