2018 Undergraduate Teaching Excellence Awards Nominations

The Auburn Alumni Association is seeking nominations for its Undergraduate Teaching Excellence Awards. Students, alumni and others are invited to submit nominations for professors, teachers and/or instructors who have made an impact on their lives. Recipients of the award will each receive a $1,000 honorarium.

To nominate a teacher or support a nomination made by someone else, each nominator should send a letter explaining how the teacher is exceptional. In the letter, consider the following:

• the quality of the teaching performance (i.e. good lecturer)

• knowledge of subject

• interest in students and availability to them

• impact on the nominator’s personal educational experience

• influence within Auburn University (i.e. number of courses taught, committee assignments, impact on the students, the department, etc.)

A letter of support from the nominee’s dean and/or department head must accompany the letters of nomination. Other letters of support from colleagues are welcome, but greatest emphasis will be placed on letters from students and alumni. The nomination form (which should accompany the nomination packet) along with a list of past recipients (CLICK HERE).

Completed packets and letters of endorsement should be sent to:
