Teaching Award

Harpur College Teaching Award

Since 2016, Harpur College students have been invited to nominate Harpur instructors whose classes they found especially meaningful, challenging, stimulating, enjoyable, and fulfilling so that they can be recognized by the college. All Harpur students are asked to submit only one nomination for an exemplary instructor that they wish to honor.

A panel of student judges will select the recipient from these nominations. Tenure-track and non-tenure-track faculty may be nominated. The selected instructor will be recognized with an award at the Harpur College Faculty Recognition Ceremony.
