MCC Teaching Excellence Award

Convinced that exceptional pedagogy is essential to the successful pursuit of the Marquette Core Curriculum’s ambitious learning outcomes, the MCC Committee has created the MCC Teaching Excellence Award to recognize faculty annually for outstanding contributions to student learning in the MCC. The awardee will be honored for demonstrating these contributions routinely through effective approaches to course design and delivery that have an extraordinary positive impact on students’ progress toward the MCC learning outcomes.


All instructors—full-time tenure and tenure track as well as full-time and part-time non-tenure track faculty—who have taught at least one MCC course in the calendar year prior to the annual deadline are eligible for consideration.


Nominations for the 2020-2021 academic year are currently being reviewed.

Past Awardees

The inaugural MCC Teaching Excellence Award will be presented in Spring 2021. The awardee and honorable mentions will be recognized on this webpage after the inaugural award has been announced.
