Nominations for all of the awards are due by Friday, April 28, 2017.

 

AFS College-Level Teaching Awards

These awards are to recognize, encourage, and reward the superior classroom teachers— those individuals whose command of their respective discipline, teaching methodologies, pervasive caring, communication skills, and commitment to the learning process exemplify the meaning of teacher/mentor in its highest sense. This award is designed to distinguish those teachers who maintain high expectations of their students and who ensure academic rigor in their courses. Distinguished teachers recognize their responsibility in motivating and contributing to the overall development of the student.

The recipients are recognized at the spring CEHD Awards Dinner.

 

Climate Awards

The CEHD Climate Awards are intended to recognize individual excellence in the areas of climate, diversity, and/or equity. Accordingly, nomination packets should describe a nominee’s contributions in one or more of these areas.

The recipients are recognized at the spring CEHD Awards Dinner.
