Teaching Excellence Recognized for Faculty Who Go Above and Beyond


Wally Cordes Teaching and Faculty Support Center Recognizes Faculty for Dedication to Teaching Excellence

The Wally Cordes Teaching and Faculty Support Center (TFSC) recently recognized 40 faculty members who went above and beyond and earned commendations for Teaching Commitment during the 2019-2020 academic year. To receive the certificate, faculty members demonstrated a commitment to teaching excellence by completing a number of teaching improvement activities prescribed for each commendation. The commendations were given in the areas of New Faculty and Not-So-New Faculty. Due to COVID-19 the commendation certificates will be presented to faculty at a later date. Join us in celebrating these teachers and their commitment to teaching excellence:
