The Sam Houston State University college of education and applied science has established four new awards for outstanding faculty. These awards, stipends of $250, will go to faculty members that are nominated by their peers and students.
“The CEAS Outstanding Awards present an opportunity to recognize colleagues that may not be recognized otherwise,” said Dr. Laverne Warner, committee chair.
The CEAS Awards are the brainchild of Dr. Genevieve Brown, dean of education and applied science. The awards parallel the Excellence in Teaching Award offered by the college in teaching, research and service. However, the CEAS Awards allow for more than one teacher to be recognized.
Faculty members are able to nominate outstanding peers in four areas of excellence: teaching, research, service and grantsmanship. Students will also have an opportunity to nominate educators in the area of teaching.
Nominations forms are available on the college of education
and applied science Web site and will be received through April 8. The winner of the award will be recognized and have his or her name engraved on a plaque in the school of education. The $250 stipend will be awarded in the fall semester.
