THE ASSOCIATION OF FORMER STUDENTS COLLEGE-LEVEL TEACHING DISTINGUISHED ACHIEVEMENT AWARDS

Each fall, The Association of Former Students honors outstanding faculty members for their dedication to teaching. Since the program's inception in 1982, recipients are recognized for their talent, expertise and devotion on conveying knowledge to students.

The Office of the Dean of Faculties issues the award guidelines, while the award selection process is managed at the college level. The colleges are now accepting nominations for this award.


Current Guidelines: N/A

Previous Guidelines: Association of Former Students College-Level Teaching Distinguished Achievement Awards Guidelines

Selection Committee Makeup:
The college coordinator should meet with representatives from the Faculty Advisory Committee and representatives of the Student Council to determine the size and composition of the selection committee. Once the size and composition of the selection committee have been decided, the college coordinator will temporarily refrain from further involvement in the process. The specific faculty and students named to participate on the selection committee will be appointed by the Student Council and Faculty Advisory Committee, in compliance with the guidelines below:
 
  1. The committee should have a good mix of faculty and students, consisting of current students (both graduate and undergraduate) and former students. It is recommended that past winners of the college level awards be asked to serve on the selection committee.
  2. You are encouraged to promote diversity reflective of the constituencies of TAMU in the selection of committee members.
  3. A chair must be appointed for the committee. The chair's function will be to preside, conduct the meetings, and count the votes, in addition to being a voting member.
  4. Great care should be taken to ensure that all of the appointed members of the selection committee fully understand the unusual significance of the awards and the necessity for maintaining the integrity of the awards.
  5. No faculty member currently under consideration for an award may serve on the selection committee.
