Faculty Excellence Award
TRU recognizes up to three faculty members who represent the best qualities of instruction and/or instructional support. Nominees for the Faculty Excellence Award may be full-time, part-time, or sessional faculty and must have been employed at TRU for at least five continuous years.
Award winners will receive an engraved plaque plus the opportunity to attend a conference or professional development activity of their choice (to a maximum of $2,000). Recipients must use this award within a two-year period from the date of the award.
Awards will be presented at the President's Annual Merit and Service Award reception.
The awards process has two Stages:
Stage 1: Members of the campus community are invited to nominate faculty members who demonstrate a commitment to instruction/ instructional support and educational leadership. Nominators will be asked to describe the faculty members’ impact on students, innovation, and campus leadership. Anyone is permitted to nominate a faculty member, and all completed nomination forms will be accepted.
Nominations will close on Thursday, December 21, 2023
Stage 2: Faculty members who meet the eligibility criteria will be asked if they would like to accept the nomination and submit a full award portfolio. Supporting documentation must be uploaded before the February deadline. Faculty who are not nominated in Stage 1 are still encouraged to self-nominate and are welcome to submit portfolios.
Deadline to upload full portfolio is Wednesday, February 14, 2024
