The University of Texas at Austin and the College of Liberal Arts recognize excellence in teaching through a number of University-wide and College-wide awards.

Nomination Process

Departments determine their own internal process for identifying candidate nominees. Nominations are submitted by the faculty candidate’s home department, unless the award allows for self-nominations or is a student-nominated award.* Nominations will also be accepted from non- departmental degree-granting units with approval of the faculty candidate’s home department chair. Faculty with equally split (50/50) appointments may be nominated by either department.

*Please note, the School for Undergraduate Studies (UGS) may nominate faculty candidates for the President’s Associates Teaching Excellence Awards. Faculty candidates may be nominated by UGS without the endorsement of the home department.

Core Eligibility

A faculty member must have a continuing appointment at The University of Texas at Austin in the year subsequent to their selection.
