Reynolds Outstanding Teacher Award

Through a gift from Marshall and Shirley Reynolds and the Marshall University Foundation, an award was established to recognize superior teaching at Marshall University and to provide encouragement and incentive for teaching achievement. The award for 2014-15, including a cash award of $3,000, will be presented at the spring General Faculty Meeting. Nominees must:

  • be in a full-time, tenured appointment
  • have a minimum of six years of credited full-time teaching experience, at least three of which are at Marshall. (For the purposes of this award, “credited full-time teaching experience” refers to the total years of experience that Academic Affairs counts as part of a faculty member’s tenured or tenure-track appointment at Marshall University.)

A faculty  member can win any given teaching award only once in his or her service at Marshall University. For additional information and to complete a nomination form, visit http://www.marshall.edu/ctl/faculty-awards-and-grants/marshall-shirley-reynolds-outstanding-teacher-award.
