Undergraduate Faculty and Staff Awards

 

Learn more about our Eller College Undergraduate Programs Faculty and Staff Awards, and view previous recipients.

Each year, during the spring semester, the Eller College Student Council presents faculty awards to two undergraduate instructors who displays enthusiasm and understanding towards their subject and compassion for their students' needs. The recipient is recognized for being approachable, making his or her in-class discussion useful, and using an effective teaching style. A survey of the Eller College Undergraduate students is taken to select an instructor who teaches in a classroom of less than 60 students and to an instructor who teaches in a classroom of 60 or more students.
