Lynn M. Martin Award for Distinguished Women Teachers
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, in fulfillment of its mission, is devoted to excellence in undergraduate teaching. Named for the founder, the Lynn M. Martin Award for Distinguished Women Teachers is designated to promote exceptional achievement in undergraduate teaching by women. Two awards (one for Teaching Assistants and one for Faculty members) may be made annually. Please submit your nominee for the LAS Dean’s Award or LAS Graduate Teaching Assistant Award. If eligible, nominees from those awards will be reviewed and ranked by the LAS Awards Committee for the Lynn M. Martin Award. A faculty member or graduate TA can only be chosen for one LAS College award in the same year. If a faculty member or graduate TA receives any LAS College award they will not be eligible for a second College award during the next ten year period for faculty and five-year period for graduate TAs.
For Faculty. An award of $1000 is placed in a discretionary account to support the recipient's teaching and research. In addition, an increment of $3500 will be added to the annual salary base of each recipient.
For Teaching Assistants. An award of $2000.
All recipients receive a commemorative plaque which is presented at the LAS Recognition of Teaching Excellence.
The following general guidelines will apply:
- All nominations of female faculty members and teaching assistants for college awards (e.g. Dean's Award, and Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching by Graduate Teaching Assistants) will automatically be considered for the Lynn M. Martin award.
- The established submission procedures and criteria for the above award nominations should be observed.
- The LAS Awards Committee will serve as the selection committee for the Lynn M. Martin awards.
- Recipients of any LAS College award will be ineligible for subsequent college awards for ten years following their selection for faculty and five years for Graduate TAs.
Deadlines for submission to the department and to the college correspond to those for the campus awards:
|Mid-November, 2012||Recommended deadline for nominations to departmental selection committee.|
|January 4, 2013||Deadline for nominations from departments to the College.|
