Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award

The Chancellor's Distinguished Teaching Award is intended to recognize and reward demonstrated teaching ability of a clearly superlative nature. The award will be given to paid (non-volunteer) faculty who contribute to the University and its students through excellence and outstanding classroom teaching. Classroom teaching is defined it its broadest sense to include educational activities in various settings and to a variety of learners in the three schools and the graduate and undergraduate programs at the medical center. Faculty can be nominated by a student or faculty member. Nominations are not open for KUMC faculty who have previously received the award. Preference will be given to early to mid-career faculty members.

Each award winner receives a one-time monetary award of $1,000. Questions about this award should be directed to Jenny Memmott, Director of Career and Professional Affairs, Office of Academic and Student Affairs.
