The Distinguished Teaching Award in Arts & Sciences was established in 2014 by Dean Barbara Schaal to honor and publicly recognize an outstanding faculty member in Arts & Sciences for his or her exceptional teaching. Arts & Sciences has a long history of distinguished educators and innovative teaching that enriches the lives of undergraduate and graduate students, and the establishment of this award is a tribute to this tradition. A $5,000 prize accompanies the award.

All tenured and tenure-track Arts & Sciences faculty, professors of the practice, lecturers, and adjuncts are eligible and may be nominated by anyone in the Washington University community.  Submit nominations to the Dean’s office via mail, Campus Box 1094, or email to Jennifer Gibbs, jgibbs@wustl.edu, by June 2, 2017.
