BOT Excellence in Teaching Award

The Minnesota State Board of Trustees Award for Excellence in Teaching annually recognizes exemplary faculty who demonstrate the teaching mission at Minnesota State colleges and universities. The foundation of that mission is faculty subject matter expertise, skillful methods of teaching and attention to student learning. The award reflects the commitment faculty have to providing high-quality instruction that prepares students for their professional, scholarly and civic lives.
