Kent State University at Stark students, alumni, faculty and staff are invited to submit nominations for the Distinguished Teaching Award for full-time faculty and the Award of Distinction for adjunct (part-time) faculty at Kent State Stark.
Each spring these awards are presented to a full-time faculty and an adjunct faculty member for his or her superior classroom teaching. Award recipients will be announced during the first week of May. A selection committee consisting of Kent State Stark faculty and students will choose the recipients.
The following criteria is used in the selection process:
- Comprehensive knowledge of his or her field
- Effectiveness in organizing and presenting material
- Ability to stimulate thinking and develop understanding in students
- Ability to arouse student interest
- Demonstrated resourcefulness
- Concern for students
These awards are not popularity contests. Simply submitting a faculty
member's name is not enough. Only those nominations which include at
least 50 words of supportive information will be forwarded to the selection
