College of Business Teaching Awards

Nomination Process

The COB Awards Committee selects the award winners from a list of nominees. Current Teaching Awards Committee members are: Jimmy Woodward, Iris Junglas, William Christiansen, Dave Maslach, Marin Mende, Luke Hopkins, and Charles Nyce.

Faculty, staff, students, and former students are eligible to nominate faculty for these awards via online nomination form below. Faculty members are allowed to self-nominate.

Nomination Form

The nominations period opens during the fall semester. Once the nomination period closes, the annual evaluation committees of each of the COB’s academic departments submit one nominee for each annual award. The annual evaluation committees submit nominees for the Distinguished Teaching Award at this time also, though this award is not necessarily awarded annually.

The nomination deadline for all Faculty and Staff award categories will be February 12th, 2019. Award recipients will be announced at the Faculty/Staff Awards Banquet on April 4th, 2019
