|Edward G. McGavran Award for Excellence in Teaching|
The purpose of the McGavran Award for Excellence in Teaching is to recognize career-long excellence in teaching by full-time faculty in the UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health. Teaching, in this context, is broadly defined and includes activities inside and outside classroom settings (e.g., mentoring student research and practice activities, teaching-related administrative roles, and innovative developments in teaching methods and materials).
The Awards Committee seeks evidence of accomplishment in teaching quality and accomplishment sustained over a career. Factors to be considered when deciding the recipient of the McGavran Award include the following:
Nominations will be solicited from students (including alumni) and faculty in the Gillings School of Global Public Health. Each nomination should be submitted online via Qualtrics survey.
To be considered, the nomination must include the name and department of the nominee and the nominator as well as a brief supporting statement that addresses the above criteria. Nominations must be received by March 18, 2013.
The Academic Programs Committee will review all nominations received and will prepare a recommendation to the dean, who will make the final selection. The associate dean of academic affairs will deliver the award at the School Commencement.
