Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Awards

LIST OF PAST RECIPIENTS

In November 2008, the UT System Board of Regents introduced the Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Awards for UT’s nine academic institutions. The awards recognize faculty who deliver the highest quality of undergraduate instruction, demonstrate their commitment to teaching, and have a history and promising future of sustained excellence with undergraduate teaching.

The Regents have allocated $1 million this year for these teaching awards. It is intended that no fewer than 30 total awards will be made this year. The awards are $25,000 and are believed to be among the highest in the nation for rewarding outstanding undergraduate faculty performance and innovation. Actual awards will be made on the strength of individual faculty, not proportionally by campus.
