Teaching

The UA Little Rock Faculty Excellence Award for Teaching recognizes, encourages, and rewards superior teachers – individuals whose command of their respective disciplines, teaching methodologies, communications skills, concern for student performance, and commitment to the learning process exemplify the teacher-mentor model.

The award is not intended to be a popularity contest. It is designed to distinguish those teachers who maintain high expectations of their students and who ensure academic rigor in their courses.
