Students often benefit from the personal attention and caring of one or two faculty members they had in college. This award will recognize faculty who had significant positive impact on undergraduate or graduate students in CASE. This is not an award for excellence in teaching, but rather an award for faculty members who have helped students achieve important personal or professional goals, who have added great value to a student’s academic, personal, or professional trajectory, or who have otherwise positively influenced a student’s life.
Faculty may be nominated by current students, alumni, or both. Alumni will be notified of this opportunity to write a letter of nomination via the monthly Alumni Association e-newsletters. Current students may also write letters of nomination, and will be notified of the opportunity via the student e-connection. Letters should not exceed three pages and should express the influence the nominee has had on the student’s life, career, and/or perspective. Faculty should not solicit nomination letters from students currently in their classes, but may encourage former students to write nomination letters if they wish. All letters should be submitted to CASE@mst.edu.
There will be up to two $500 awards per year.
All CASE affiliated full-time ranked faculty and NTT faculty are eligible.
Current members of the Faculty Leadership Council and faculty who have won this award in the past three years are not eligible. Past winners are listed below.
