UNT Piper Professor Nominee

Award Description

This prestigious award honors ten (10) professors from throughout Texas during the current academic year for their dedication to the teaching profession and superior teaching ability at the college level. Although the purpose of these awards is to provide recognition to the teaching profession, the selection committee will also consider factors such as research, publication, administration and related activities. Each award recipient will be honored with a certificate naming them “Piper Professor” of the year, a cash honorarium of $5,000, and a gold commemorative pin.

Selection Process/Eligibility

Under the current Minnie Stevens Piper Foundation guidelines, each institution may submit only one nomination. The Faculty Awards Committee reviews nominations and makes a recommendation to the President for approval of the selected candidate. The candidate for the award must be a full-time instructor. Nominations are taken in early fall, with the official announcement of award recipients made in May each year by the Piper foundation. 

Deadline

All completed nomination packets must be received by Faculty Senate by October 23, 2020.

The selection criteria, requirements and application form can be found at the Faculty Senate website.
