HSU Distinguished Faculty Awards

Excellence in Teaching Award – Lecturer

One of two awards for “Excellence in Teaching,” this award is given for a record of “superlative teaching at Humboldt State University.”  Nominees have been teaching faculty for at least three of the previous five years at HSU.  In cases where nominees are perceived as equally superlative in their teaching, contributions to research, scholarship, and service may be considered, insofar as these activities bear direct relevance to the nominee's primary role as educator.

The annual call for nominations goes out in the Fall and nominations are reviewed by a Faculty Awards Committee. Recommendations for awards are made to the University Senate and forwarded to the President of the University. Awardees are honored and recognized the University's Honors Dinner in April and at the University Senate reception in May. Each awardee is invited to deliver a public lecture in the following academic year.
