The President’s University-Wide Teaching Awards honour those who, through innovation and commitment, have significantly enhanced the quality of learning by York students. Four awards are offered each year in the following categories:
- Full-Time tenured faculty with 10 or more years of full-time teaching experience
- Full-Time faculty (tenured/tenure-stream/CLA) with less than 10 years of teaching experience
- Contract and adjunct faculty
- Teaching assistants
The purpose of these awards is to provide significant recognition for excellence in teaching, to encourage its pursuit, to publicize such excellence when achieved across the University and in the wider community, and to promote informed discussion of teaching and its improvement.
The awards demonstrate the value York University attaches to teaching. Recipients of the awards, selected by the Senate Committee on Awards, receive $3,000, have their names engraved on the University-Wide Teaching Award plaques in Vari Hall and are recognized at convocation ceremonies.
Only online nominations for the 2019 Teaching Awards, submitted by 5 p.m. on Jan. 25, will be accepted.
