Distinguished Teaching Award
Overview and Eligibility
One of the hallmarks of a climate for excellence in two-year colleges is the recognition and reward of excellence in teaching. Southern State Community College established the Distinguished Teaching Award to recognize teaching excellence by its faculty. One award will be given annually. Recipients who receive an award are invited to serve on the Southern State committee for the following year.
To be eligible for the Distinguished Teaching Award, nominees must currently teach at Southern State Community College.
Once nominations are received the selection committee reviews each nominee, conducts interviews and classroom observations as deemed appropriate, and selects up to five finalists.
The Selection Committee selects one Distinguished Teaching Award recipient and their name is announced by the President during the Spring Commencement Faculty dinner.
