Nominations Now Open for 2015 U.S. Professors of the Year

WASHINGTON, D.C.—Nominations are now being accepted for the 2015 U.S. Professors of the Year awards. The deadline for all entries is Monday, April 13.

Sponsored by the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching and administered by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education, the awards program is the only national initiative that focuses solely on excellent undergraduate teaching and mentoring. The program offers excellent opportunities for colleges and universities to draw positive attention to teaching excellence across campus and throughout the community and region.

The awards program is open to educators at four-year and two-year institutions in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.

Four national winners will each receive $5,000 and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., including an invitation to speak at the 2015 awards luncheon in November. State winners also receive complimentary attendance for two at the luncheon, along with recognition at the event and in the media. National and state award winners will also be honored at an early-evening congressional reception.

Nomination materials and information on the awards program are available on the U.S. Professors of the Year website.
