Teaching Awards Move to Fall

ACC is now accepting nominations for two annual teaching awards previously given in the spring semester.

ACC Teaching Excellence Award

Students, faculty, and staff are invited to nominate full-time or adjunct faculty members for the Teaching Excellence award. The award honors faculty who promote special learning opportunities, student interaction, and innovation. Also considered are depth and breadth of knowledge in their subject area and a profound teaching philosophy. Recipients receive a $1,000 cash award.

Piper Professor Award

Academic department chairs and deans may nominate faculty members to be considered as ACC’s nominee for the Piper Professor award given by the Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation. The foundation honors 10 professors statewide for their outstanding academic, scientific, and scholarly achievement and their dedication to the teaching profession. Piper professors receive a $5,000 honorarium.

The nomination deadline for the Piper Professor award is Oct. 25. For more information or to view award criteria, visit the teaching awards webpage.
