SGAEC Excellence in Teaching Awards

One of the most prestigious awards a faculty member can win is the SGAEC Excellence in Teaching Award. The winning recipients are nominated by the students of the various colleges.

Each year two faculty members from each college receive awards (the College of Social Work will receive one award). The recipients will receive recognition in the following ways: A plaque, a $2,500.00 stipend, and public recognition at the SGAEC Banquet, College Convocations and Commencement Ceremonies. Faculty members may not receive an SGAEC Excellence in Teaching Award two consecutive years (see list below).
