About the President’s Award for Excellence in Teaching: The awards are celebrated as the university’s most prestigious annual academic award. Their purpose is to recognize teachers who have promoted significant student learning- evidenced by creative and innovative approaches to teaching, the effective use of instructional technology, and exceptional pedagogical skill. Additionally, the recipient’s impact on student faith, thought, and character fully realizes Dr. Falwell’s vision of training Champions for Christ. The award process involves a formal peer nomination, dean support, faculty input, and student contribution. The Center for Teaching Excellence oversees the adjudication and process. Winners from each category are recommended by separate confidential Provost Selection Committees, comprised of select faculty, academic leadership, and past winners, and are affirmed by the Offices of the Provosts.
