Teaching and Advising Awards: Boston University and the College of Arts & Sciences value excellent teaching and mentoring. For CAS award winners, click here. Among the BU and CAS awards for teaching and mentoring are:
Nominations annually to the Office of the Provost in October.
This award recognizes one faculty member per year based upon his/her contribution to learning and the university. It was established by the General Board of Higher Education and Ministry of The United Methodist Church and carries a $2,000 stipend. Nominations are made annually through the dean to the Provost. Information is available at the Provost’s website.
CAS awards three teaching prizes each year: the Gitner Award, Neu Award, and Wisneski Award. All full-time faculty who have been teaching in CAS for at least two years are eligible. Any faculty member or department may nominate worthy faculty for these awards, which recognize excellence and distinguished teaching in the broadest sense, including classroom performance, course and curriculum development, mentoring and other academic engagement with students outside the classroom, and enhancement of the scholarship of teaching and learning. These distinctions, conferred annually at the April CAS faculty meeting, include a $1,000 award.
Nominations consist of a detailed letter, current cv, and supporting documents such as syllabi, student evaluations, and any other materials that would aid in the recognition of superior teaching. Supporting letters from students and other faculty members may be included, but are not required. Nominations should be submitted to Associate Dean Susan Jackson electronically at email@example.com by Friday, March 4, 2011.
Templeton Award for Excellence in Student Advising (3 awards): These awards for excellence in advising are recognized at the April CAS faculty meeting. These are the result of student nominations through the Office of Student Academic Life.
