ASU Calls for Teaching Excellence Award Nominations
Nominations for the 2004-05 Angelo State University Teaching Excellence Award are being accepted through Jan. 31 by the ASU Faculty Senate.
Nominations and all supporting material must be submitted to the Faculty Senate's Academic Affairs Committee in care of Dr. Bruce McKinney, Department of Communications, Drama and Journalism, ASU Station #10895, Angelo State University, San Angelo, Texas, 76909-0895. Individuals seeking additional information should call (325) 942-2322, Ext. 354.
The nomination should include a cover letter from at least one sponsoring ASU faculty member or administrator, a current curriculum vitae of the applicant, and letters of recommendation. The recipient and two finalists will be announced in April.
The award is presented annually to a deserving ASU faculty member for his or her dedication to the teaching profession and for outstanding academic, scientific and scholarly achievement. The ASU Teaching Excellence Award was established to recognize and encourage teaching excellence. While research, publication, administration or related activities may be acknowledged in the award, the primary focus is on classroom teaching excellence.
All faculty who have held a full-time appointment on the ASU faculty for three or more academic years are eligible for nomination. The committee may solicit other references for further evidence of teaching excellence before making its recommendations to the Faculty Senate.
