The Oregon Tech Foundation Excellence in Teaching Awards are presented annually to recognize the outstanding teaching of one faculty member from the College of Engineering, Technology, and Management (ETM) and one faculty member from the College of Health, Arts and Sciences (HAS). The Foundation looks forward to honoring faculty members whose talents as teachers make a difference in the lives of students. Award recipients will receive a $1,000 stipend and will be honored with a certificate at the Spring Commencement ceremonies. AWARD CRITERIA
Recipients of the Oregon Tech Foundation Excellence in Teaching Award should demonstrate one or more of the following:
- Outstanding teaching performance as evidenced by engaging instruction, positive interaction with, and availability to, students
- Exemplary commitment to students through academic advising, or extra-curricular involvement and advising, both formal and informal
- Leadership in initiatives supporting student success
Recommendations about award recipients will be made by Selection Committee based on the extent to which the initial nomination and letters of support demonstrate excellence as described by the award criteria. Additional consideration will be given to those with multiple recommendations and to recommendations written by students. Selection Committee recommendations will be submitted to the Oregon Tech Foundation President by May 15th.
