Honors Professor of the Year
Many of you have observed that the quality of your Honors classroom experience has depended less on the particular courses offered than on the expertise of the instructors. I hope you will take the time to recognize their enthusiasm and experience by nominating one faculty member as the Honors Professor of the Year.
The person you recommend may be someone you have worked with either in class or independently, this year or in the past. The person should, however, have contributed substantially and positively to your education by challenging you, by leading you to ask questions or draw conclusions you would never have considered, by uniquely exciting your interest in and curiosity about a subject. All regularly appointed faculty members are eligible. The winner, to be announced at the Honors Program Senior Reception on Monday, April 24, will receive a plaque and a check for $500.
Please submit a letter naming your candidate for the award and describing your reasons for selecting him or her, being specific in detailing his or her particular excellencies. A committee of Tulane Honors students and the Honors Program Director will together select this year’s winner.
All nominations for Honors Professor of the Year must be submitted to the Honors Program office no later than Monday, April 10th. Thank you for taking the time to recognize the special efforts of our best faculty.
