PRESIDENTIAL PROFESSOR FOR TEACHING EXCELLENCE AWARD

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. All members of the faculty – whether tenured, tenure track, or academic professional track, and who teach either undergraduate and graduate students, or both – are eligible for these awards. 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.
