The Outstanding Teacher Award recognizes excellence in teaching at all levels. Faculty must be recognized as an Outstanding Teacher before they can receive the Board of Governors Award for Excellence in Teaching and the Alumni Distinguished Professor Award.
Upon being selected as an Outstanding Teacher, recipients become members of the Academy of Outstanding Teachers for as long as they are NC State faculty. Recognition is given at commencement, Celebration of Academic Excellence, and the Teaching and Learning Symposium.
NC State students and faculty are encouraged to recommend one or more current or former professors for recognition as a recipient as a member of NC State’s Academy of Outstanding Teachers. This is done by submitting names to the colleges, or by using the online form for the nomination of teachers. We will collect these online submissions and forward to the appropriate colleges.
Outstanding Teacher Cash Awards
Outstanding Teacher Award recipients are reviewed by the Senior Class Council and up to seven* are selected for a cash award of $1,000.00.
College selections must be submitted to the Office of Faculty Development, 4th Floor, Clark Hall, Campus Box 7227, no later than 2:00 p.m., January 18, 2013. NOTE: Each college will have their own deadline for submissions to their college committee to allow review time and submission to the University Level. Contact your college’s Associate Dean for Academic Affairs for their submission schedule.
