Associates Award for Excellence in Teaching: Eligibility

Teaching at USC takes place in a variety of teaching environments: classrooms, clinics, labs, studios, in the field, online, and abroad. Faculty are encouraged to nominate colleagues who make extraordinary contributions to the educational experience of students in any of these contexts. Current faculty across all ranks and tracks, with at least six years of full-time teaching service at USC, are eligible. Nominations may focus on achievements in teaching and/or teaching leadership. Self-nominations are not accepted. Previous winners are not eligible.
