All faculty are eligible to be nominated except for recipients of the award in the past four years: Sonia Molloy and Lou Paioletti (2020), Joe Royer and Megan Lorenz (2021), and Joan Smeltzer and Audra Weaver (2022), and Noel Sloboda and Sara Shaw (2023). Nominations submitted during the fall 2023 semester will be combined with nominations submitted during spring 2024.
Two awards will be given: one to a full-time faculty member and one to a part-time faculty member. Do not worry if you are unsure whether a faculty member is full-time or part-time – the Teaching Award Committee will divide the nominations accordingly.
Fall nominations for the 2023–24 James H. Burness Award for Excellence in Teaching are now being accepted. Nominations should be submitted by 5:00 p.m. on Friday, December 8, 2023.
