Each year, the UT Alumni Association funds awards that recognize excellence in the classroom. The Outstanding Teacher Award is part of the association’s continuing effort to encourage resourceful and creative instruction and to publicly recognize exceptional teaching, especially the teaching of undergraduates.

Selected by the Knoxville Campus Alumni Awards Committee, the winners will be announced at the spring Chancellor’s Honors Banquet.

To nominate a current faculty member visit the Vols Connect website and download a nomination form. Deadline for nominations is Friday, November 4.

Please note that winners of the Alumni Outstanding Teacher Award are ineligible to receive the award again for a period of five years.
