President's Teaching Scholars Program seeks 2011 nominees

Systemwide designation recognizes excellence in teaching, learning

The President's Teaching Scholars Program (PTSP) has begun its 2011 call for nominations, with dossiers being accepted from now through Nov. 12.

University of Colorado President Bruce D. Benson solicits nominations of faculty for the designation, a lifetime appointment. The title of CU President's Teaching Scholar represents the university's highest recognition of excellence in and active commitment to learning and teaching as well as active and substantial contributions to scholarly work in one's discipline or, in the case of a less senior scholar, indications of path-breaking contributions to his or her field. Chancellors, deans, departments and other faculty nominators are encouraged to nominate candidates for this designation and commitment; self-nominations will not be accepted.

All tenured faculty members throughout the CU system are eligible to be nominated. Clinical Teaching Track (CTT) faculty members who hold the rank of associate professor or professor are eligible to be nominated, as are tenure-track faculty members in the School of Medicine who hold the rank of associate professor or professor. The President's Teaching Scholar designation is not an end-of-career-at-CU award, but rather membership in an active society of scholars and teachers involved in outreach to faculty peers. The Selection Committee will evaluate applications based on past achievements and on furthering the goals of the President's Teaching Scholars Program.

Those appointed as Teaching Scholars will receive a $3,000 stipend for each of the first two years; a one-time teaching development fund of $2,000; and an addition of $2,000 to the base salary beginning the third year.
