Call for Nominations for the 2018 USG Teaching Excellence & SoTL Awards
The UGA Center for Teaching and Learning (CTL) is pleased to announce the call and coordination of selections of the University's nominees for the University System of Georgia's 2018 Felton Jenkins, Jr. Hall of Fame Faculty Awards, Regents’ Teaching Excellence Awards, and Regents’ Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Awards.
The Felton Jenkins, Jr. Hall of Fame Faculty Awards, Regents’ Teaching Excellence Awards, and Regents’ Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Awards are the highest honors for faculty at Georgia’s public colleges and universities. The program accepts nominations from each institution in the University System of Georgia (USG) annually, and only one nominee in each category can be selected from the University of Georgia. Individual faculty award winners are recognized each year during an awards ceremony at the Regents’ Scholarship Gala along with a $5,000 prize.
Created in 1996, the Regents’ Awards program recognizes the finest among the University System of Georgia’s full-time instructional faculty for their demonstrated educational excellence in teaching, online teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Award recipients in the past have had a record of exceptional teaching and a strong commitment to impacting student learning, ultimately fostering the academic success of students.
