The MTSU Foundation has funded Outstanding Teacher Awards for the past forty-five years. The Foundation will fund five awards for $3,000 each again this year.
The plan for making the awards consists of two phases: nominations and selection. Nominations will be made by three groups: alumni, faculty, and students. Selections will be based upon evaluations by students and tenured faculty.
A committee representing the Foundation, alumni, SGA, administration, and the faculty will review the qualifications of the nominees to determine if each nominee meets the above criteria. Qualified nominees will be evaluated by their students, department chairs, and tenured colleagues using the Teacher Performance checklists .
The final tabulations are made by computer. In determining the final rating of each candidate, the student checklist constitutes seventy-five percent of the overall rating and the tenured faculty checklist constitutes the remaining twenty-five percent.
Please fill out the online nomination forms which include a digital signature. The forms can then be submitted by email or printed using the buttons at the top.
