Faculty Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching

The Faculty Award for Excellence in Graduate Teaching recognizes a colleague for commitment to outstanding teaching in Loyola’s graduate programs. Graduate teaching takes many forms, ranging from traditional classroom instruction to connecting students with practicing professionals, to mentoring their skill building, supervising in professional settings, and many other ways of nurturing academic and/or artistic talent as emerging professionals.

Beginning in 2017, this faculty award honors the unique efforts of faculty teaching in graduate programs as they work to facilitate graduate student development as effective leaders and change agents. A faculty member from one college or school is recognized each year on a rotating basis. Selection is based on department nominations to a small committee of graduate academic administrators and past award recipients. The recipient is announced each year at the annual Faculty Excellence Celebration (formerly the Deans' Symposium). Colleagues who have been nominated in the past may be re-nominated. Colleagues can only receive the award once.


Any current full-time faculty member
