The award, which carries a stipend of $2,500, is presented annually at the April faculty meeting.
All undergraduates are invited to submit nominations by the deadline. The recipient is selected by the Dean of Arts and Sciences upon the recommendation of a committee consisting of three faculty, including previous Teaching Prize recipients, in consultation with the Senior Associate Dean for Undergraduate Education. Decisions are based on nomination letters, teaching evaluations, Faculty Activity Reports and CVs. Nominations are due in March 1, 2022.
