The Johnson Center for Creative Teaching and Learning Advisory Board accepts nominations each spring for the Johnson Center for Creative Teaching and Learning Excellence in Teaching Award. This award is given to an exceptional teacher who is, at least, seven years beyond tenure but who is not on the point of retirement. This award will be made on the basis of a faculty member’s quadrennial review where excellence in teaching has come to the fore as so exceptional that it stands apart from the work of many other gifted teachers. Consequently, either a department chair or the Provost will make the nomination. It is awarded in the year following the quadrennial review at Fall Honors Day.
