The College of Pharmacy Award for Teaching Excellence is a peer-reviewed nomination process for recognizing outstanding faculty. Clinical-track faculty, tenure-track faculty, lecturers, visiting faculty and adjunct faculty are eligible for consideration through self-nomination or nomination by colleagues.
The College of Pharmacy Academic Performance/Awards and Recognition Committee follows the UI President and Provost Award for Teaching Excellence model for content of candidate support materials. This ensures sufficient information to select awardees and to employ uniform, university-wide standards in choosing recipients.
