OFFICE MANAGING THE AWARD PROCESS: Office of Academic Programs

DATE OF ANNOUNCEMENT: Early January

DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Early February

ELIGIBILITY: The Louis and Edith Edgerton Career Teaching Award is presented to a faculty member with at least 25 years of teaching at Cornell.

SPECIFICS: The award was established in 1980 and is presented annually to honor a meritorious and senior faculty member of the College who has, throughout a long and continuous career in CALS, provided outstanding teaching and advising to students. There are several considerations for this award:

  • Years of teaching
  • Continuity of service to teaching (at least one course per calendar year)
  • Excellence in teaching (formal and informal evidence of quality and innovation, demonstrated primarily in undergraduate courses)
  • Commitment to students (evidence of instruction that guides them in their search for knowledge)
  • Scholarly self-renewal (evidence of effort to make available to students up-to-date knowledge related to the field of expertise)

A plaque in recognition of this career award is located on the mezzanine in Roberts Hall. Additionally, a monetary award is made to the department of the recipient to be used for activities and resources that enhance, strengthen or improve instructional capabilities of the department's teaching faculty.
