Criteria for Nomination:
Nominations may be submitted by students, faculty members, or alumni of the College of Public Health, and may come from individuals or groups.

Selection Committee and Process:
The Committee is comprised of the three most recent recipients of the award, plus one student from each Division/Program in the College of Public Health. The Selection Committee will review final nominations. For each nominee, the committee will request a CV, letter from the Division Chair/Program Director concerning the individual's teaching contributions, and copies of SEI's of courses for the last three years. Using this additional information, the committee will select a single person for the award.

Award recipients will be given a plaque indicating the honor and will also be added to the plaque listing all recipients displayed outside the Dean's Office.
