Dedicated and effective teachers are important assets to the College of Public Health and Ohio State, which is why each year we honor one faculty member with the Excellence in Teaching Award for their exemplary performance in the teaching mission of the college.
In order to be eligible, faculty members must have a continuing salaried appointment in the College of Public Health. In addition, the individual must not have won the award in the previous five years. Emeritus faculty, adjunct faculty and teaching assistants are not eligible to be nominated.
Criteria for Nomination:
Nominations may be submitted by students, faculty members and alumni of the College of Public Health, and may come from individuals or groups.
Selection Committee and Process:
The selection 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 from the last three years. Using this information, the committee will select a single person for the award.
Award recipients will be given a plaque indicating the honor, and will be added to the plaque listing all recipients, displayed outside the dean's suite in the second-floor lobby of Cunz Hall.
