Part-time Faculty Anniversaries and "Excellence in Teaching" Award
Every year, the School of H&K asks students to nominate deserving part-time faculty for the "Excellence in Teaching" Award. A committee of full-time and part-time faculty reviews the nominations students submit and selects the winner.
The winner is recognized at the annual H&K Awards Banquet in the spring.
Faculty, staff and students from the School of Health and Kinesiology would like to recognize part-time faculty for their contributions and to honor the “Excellence in Teaching Award” recipients.
