Call for Nominations--Regents Awards


This is the final call for nominations for the Regents Excellence in Teaching Awards for 2013-2014. The University Awards Subcommittee will consider nominations and forward one campus nominee for each of the awards (individual faculty and department) to the UW System Regents Award Committee. $5,000 awards are awarded for the Regents Excellence in Teaching Awards. One award to a faculty member from one of the UW System institutions in recognition of outstanding career achievement in teaching, and another to an academic department, program or other academic unit which demonstrates exceptional commitment to and effectiveness in teaching. The Regents Teaching Excellence Awards are administered by the systemwide Office of Instructional and Professional Development. For more information on the nature of the awards and past awardees, please see  To foster greater participation, the University Awards Subcommittee strongly encourages you to submit previous UW-Stevens Point University Award winners and their department(s) for consideration for the Board of Regents Individual and Departmental Teaching Awards.

We are asking each college dean and the Learning Resource Center for one nomination in each of the two categories. Along with your nomination please include, on two pages (sent electronically), a detailed description of why that individual or department deserves this recognition. Please send the nominations to the Faculty Senate Office,, no later than noon on Friday, October 18, 2013.
The committee will notify the individual and department selected in an adequate timeframe to allow needed time to prepare the required materials for submission to the Regents Award Committee in February 2014.
Attached is a summary of the criteria that the Regents Award Committee has used in determining past award recipients. It is anticipated that criteria will be very similar this year, although criteria has not been officially released. The University Awards Subcommittee will follow these criteria in choosing the campus nominees. Also attached, for your information, is a list of the UW-Stevens Point faculty and program nominees in previous years.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Nanci Simon in the Faculty Senate Office (
