Student nominations for faculty from all colleges and schools across campus are now being accepted for the Best Should Teach Awards. Each year, the Best Should Teach initiative honors CU Boulder full-time faculty and senior instructors as well as K-12 teachers each fall at the community-wide Best Should Teach Awards Ceremony in September. The nomination deadline is extended to May 1, and mark your calendar for the Best Should Teach Awards Ceremony and Lecture on Thursday, Sept. 12, 2019 in the UMC Ballroom.

The Best Should Teach initiative was launched by the late lifelong educator Lindley Stiles and his wife Marguerite Stiles, who established the initiative in 1996. Stiles’ inspiring motto is inscribed on the School of Education Building walls:

“To those who come, I leave the flame! Hold it as high as you can reach. If a better world is your aim, all must agree: The Best Should Teach.”
