Description of Awards
In 2003, Texas A&M University established two university-level awards for excellence in teaching. These awards, titled "Presidential Professor for Teaching Excellence," each carry a one-time, after-tax stipend of $25,000 in addition to salary. Each awardee bears the designation "Presidential Professor for Teaching Excellence" for the remainder of his or her career. To be eligible for the award, nominees must be full time faculty and hold the rank of Lecturer, Senior Lecturer, Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor or Distinguished Professor. Each college on the College Station campus, the Center for Teaching Excellence, Student Government Association and the Graduate Student Council may each submit one nominee. The nominating units may determine their own processes for selection of nominees, and should communicate these procedures widely throughout their units.
