Walzer Award for Teaching
The Michael L. Walzer '56 Award for Teaching is given annually to a tenure-track faculty member who combines superlative scholarship with inspired teaching.
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 by March 12, 2021.
