Origin of the Awards
This award was first given by the University in 1995 to recognize the important role of post-baccalaureate teaching.
- Any teacher of post-baccalaureate students who is a full-time faculty member (tenured and tenure-track) is eligible. This includes teachers in Health Affairs, Academic Affairs, and professional schools. Fixed-term faculty members are eligible if they have taught at UNC-Chapel Hill for at least five years. Visiting faculty members are not eligible.
- Nominees must be teaching in the academic year in which they are selected. Faculty members who also teach undergraduate students are eligible.
- Individuals cannot receive this award more than once every five years. Check the list of previous winners to be sure.
- The subcommittee will choose four winners for this award.
- Finalists will be notified and asked to provide digital teaching portfolios
