This award recognizes an experienced tenured or tenure track faculty member, distinguished as a teacher in the broadest sense of the word, and recognized not only for performance in the classroom but also for exemplifying the ideals of a liberal arts education.

To be considered for the award, faculty members must have held the rank of associate or full professor for at least a year. Recipients are announced at the Faculty Meeting in May.
