Created in 1996, the Regents’ Awards program recognizes the finest among the University System of Georgia’s full-time instructional faculty for their demonstrated educational excellence in teaching, online teaching and the scholarship of teaching and learning. Award recipients in the past have had a record of exceptional teaching and a strong commitment to impacting student learning, ultimately fostering the academic success of students.
The Office of Faculty Development & Teaching Excellence will put out a call for nominations in the Fall of each academic year. Nominations can be made by any Augusta University Employee, or self-nominated. The OFDTE will create a peer review committee to go select one nomination from each of the four awards to go forward to the USG review committee.
