1)      Deadline for submission of Pew Teaching Excellence and Outstanding Teacher Awards - Message from Darren Walhof, Chair of CLAS Development Committee

The deadline for nominations for both the Pew Teaching Excellence awards and Outstanding Teacher award is September 15, soon after the semester starts. (An early deadline is necessary because nominations from the dean’s office are due to FTLC by October 15.) Please encourage the faculty members in your unit to begin the nomination process early. To nominate a colleague for either award, complete the nomination form, collect the appropriate materials, and submit these items to the CLAS dean's office by September 15.
