AFS College-Level Teaching Award

Each fall, The Association of Former Students honors outstanding faculty members for their dedication to teaching. Since the program's inception in 1982, recipients are recognized for their talent, expertise and devotion on conveying knowledge to students.

The Office of Academic Affairs issues the award guidelines, while the award selection process is managed at the college level. The colleges are now accepting nominations for this award.
