TEACHING EXCELLENCE AWARD WINNERS

The Faculty Awards for Teaching Excellence recognize faculty who inspire students to seek the ideals of the university and cause them to grow in knowledge and scholarship for the glory of God and the good of others.

Nominations are made by faculty and students each year, and winners are chosen by eight reviewers. Each award winner receives a $5,000 stipend and is honored during a formal awards ceremony at the annual Père Marquette Dinner on the first Thursday in May, a gathering that honors the university's namesake, Jesuit missionary and explorer Father Jacques Marquette.
