Presidential Outstanding Teaching Award Committee

FUNCTION: 

Since 1991, in recognition of the mission of inspiring and dedicated teaching at the University of Maine, the President has annually presented the Presidential Outstanding Teaching Award to a University of Maine faculty member who propels students into new fields of learning and promotes interdisciplinary understanding.

Outstanding Teaching helps students develop their creative abilities, communication, and critical thinking skills, and understanding of traditions in ethics and rationality within the arts, sciences, and professions. In order to honor University of Maine faculty, only tenured UMaine and Cooperative Extension faculty may receive this award.
