The Western Michigan University College of Arts and Sciences Faculty Achievement Award in Teaching is one of four faculty achievement awards.
This award is based on:
- An accumulated record of achievement as a teacher;
- Favorable faculty evaluations on student-rating questionnaires, though ratings alone are not sufficient to receive the award;
- Outstanding teaching, including graduate and undergraduate classroom instruction, mentoring, independent study, field work, laboratory work, thesis and dissertation advising, undergraduate and graduate advising, curriculum innovation or any other work in which faculty interacts with students to promote learning; and
- Teaching done at WMU.
All awards are subject to final budgetary approval and authorization by the dean of the college.
Faculty who have received a faculty achievement award are not eligible to receive a subsequent award in the same category within five years.
