Washington State University announces that applications and nominations for the 2018 Richard G. Law Excellence Award for Undergraduate Teaching will be accepted through Mon., March 5.
The new recipient will be recognized at the WSU Undergraduate Education awards ceremony on April 26.
Presented since 2013, the Law Award recognizes outstanding teaching by faculty on all campuses who teach courses in the University Common Requirements (UCORE) curriculum.
All instructors of record—instructors and clinical faculty as well as tenure-track faculty on all campuses—whose teaching has included at least one UCORE class annually for the past three years are eligible.
More information about the award and the application/nomination process is available on the Law Award webpage at http://vpue.wsu.edu/LawAward-UndergraduateTeaching/.
The award is named in honor of retired WSU administrator and faculty member Richard Law, who served as the director of general education from 1990 until his retirement in 2009. The award in his name values the important role played by general education/UCORE faculty across the university to help undergraduates attain WSU Learning Goals and Outcomes, especially outside their major area of study.

Law Award recipients are described as educators who inspire curiosity and understanding of an area of study. Their classes encourage development of the
lifelong learning skills of integrating and synthesizing concepts to solve real problems, according to application and nomination information.
