March 23 deadline for undergraduate teaching nominations

PULLMAN, Wash. – Washington State University instructors who have taught at least one university common requirements (UCORE) class annually for the past three years are encouraged to apply for the 2016 Richard G. Law Excellence Award for Undergraduate Teaching.

All instructors of record (instructors and clinical faculty as well as tenure-track faculty) are eligible. Materials are due to Jeannie Holt (jmholt@wsu.edu) by 5 p.m. Wednesday, March 23. The recipient will be recognized at the Office of Undergraduate Education awards ceremony on April 18.

Learn more about the award and application/nomination process at http://vpue.wsu.edu/LawAward-UndergraduateTeaching/.

The award is named in honor of retired administrator and faculty member Richard Law, who served as the director of general education from 1990 until his retirement in 2009. The award values the importance of general education/UCORE faculty in helping undergraduates attain WSU learning goals and outcomes, especially outside their majors.

Faculty members receiving this award are educators who inspire curiosity and understanding of an area of study and encourage development of the lifelong learning skills of integrating and synthesizing concepts to solve real problems.

Questions about the award or application/nomination process may be emailed to Karen Weathermon, chair of the award review committee, at kweathermon@wsu.edu, or to Holt at jmholt@wsu.edu.
