The University Scholar/Teacher Award, presented annually at Commencement, is a faculty honor supported by the United Methodist Church’s General Board of Higher Education and Ministry.
The selection criteria for the award include:
- Demonstration of exceptional teaching
- Recognized concern for students and colleagues, and sensitivity to the mission of the church-related university
- A record of significant contributions to the scholarly life of the university
- Commitment to high standards of professional and personal life
In support of Emory’s belief that “the intellectual and social energy that results from diversity is a primary asset of the university,” special consideration should be given to nominees that reflect this commitment to inclusiveness.
