Call for Nominations: Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards

Nominations are being accepted for four Chancellor’s Distinguished Teaching Awards (CDTA):

  • Chancellors Club Career Teaching Award – The award carries a stipend of $10,000, less applicable taxes, and is presented annually to a longstanding KU professor whose career exemplifies best the commitment of the university to outstanding teaching and the long-term success of students.  Announcement of the recipient of the award will be made at the Chancellors Club dinner during the fall semester. Nominations are invited from students, faculty, staff and alumni of the University.
  •  Chancellors Club Teaching Professorship – The Chancellors Club Teaching Professorship recognizes excellence in teaching and will be awarded only to persons who have demonstrated outstanding teaching competence over a period of years. The professorship is awarded for a five-year term and carries an annual salary supplement of $10,000.  The professorship will be awarded in 2017 and will extend through the 2021-2022 academic year. There are three professorships open for 2017.
  •  Ned N. Fleming Trust Award – The award has recognized distinguished teaching since 1990 and carries a $5,000 cash prize. All tenured or tenure-track faculty who have not previously received a CDTA are eligible for nomination.
  •  Byron T. Shutz Award – The award alternates between recognizing a tenured faculty member in any discipline in odd-numbered years, and a tenured faculty member in business or economics in even-numbered years.
