NOMINATE FACULTY FOR DISTINGUISHED AWARD
Quality teaching has always been a hallmark of Penn State Brandywine. We have been recognizing outstanding teaching with a campus award since 1972. In 2003, under the leadership of John D. Vairo, founding Director of the Campus, and Michael Kersnick, Associate Professor Emeritus of Business, an endowed Distinguished Teacher Award was created.
In the document approved by the University Board of Trustees establishing the endowed award, the purpose of the Penn State Brandywine Distinguished Teacher Award was set forth:
"to honor and recognize distinguished teaching while providing encouragement and incentive for teaching excellence and contributions to the Penn State Brandywine campus community."
Faculty eligible for nomination shall be "full-time faculty, including librarians of Penn State Brandywine". The criteria used for selection of the winner are "excellence and lasting impact in areas such as general teaching ability, scholarship, academic advising and career guidance, enthusiasm, and commitment".
Please take a few minutes of your time and submit a nomination for this prestigious teaching award. The deadline for the submission of nominations for the 2007 Distinguished Teaching Award is May 21, 2007. The winner will be announced at the Fall 2007 Honors Convocation.
