The Associates Award for Excellence in Teaching
As of 2009 - Non-Tenure Track Faculty Eligible for Nomination.
The Associates Award for Excellence in Teaching is the highest honor the University Faculty bestows on its members for outstanding teaching. Up to two awards of $3,500 are presented each year at the Academic Honors Convocation (in April) to emphasize the University's recognition of the significant role that teaching plays in its mission.
The award recognizes the career achievements of outstanding full-time tenure track and full-time non-tenure track faculty with a proven track record as exceptional teachers with a positive, inspiring, and long-lasting effect on students and their learning, along with extraordinary, unique, or pioneering contributions to excellence in teaching. It is not intended as a "Teacher of the Year" award. Nominees should thus have spent a significant period of time at the University of Southern California.
