The Charles A. Hutchinson Memorial Teaching Award recognizes faculty in the College of Engineering and Applied Science who have made outstanding contributions to teaching. Instructional faculty as well as tenured/tenure-track faculty are eligible. The $1,000 award honors Charles A. Hutchinson, a distinguished professor of applied mathematics in the college from 1918 to 1966. He received the college's Distinguished Engineering Alumni Award posthumously in 1970 (see profile).
The factors that may be considered include, but are not limited to: record of course teaching; leadership in curriculum, laboratory, or course development at the department, college, or campus level; individual supervision of undergraduate or graduate students; leadership in professional activities about teaching and education; publications and presentations about teaching and education. The award is intended to recognize faculty who have shown a consistent dedication to teaching, education, and students.
Nomination information is sent to each departmental office by the Dean's Office.
Nominations and supporting documentation should be returned to the Dean's Office by the first Friday in November each year.
A committee of three, appointed by the Dean, will review all nominations and recommend an award recipient to the Dean.
The award will be given at the college faculty and staff reception in January.
