Regents’ Teaching Excellence Awards for Departments and Programs Presented

Two University System of Georgia (USG) programs selected by the USG Academic Affairs office will share the distinction as this year’s recipients of the Board of Regents’ Teaching Excellence Award winners. The Lewis F. Rogers Institute for Environmental Spatial Analysis
 at Gainesville State College (GSC) and the First Year Composition Program
 at the University of Georgia (UGA) were recognized at the USG’s Board of Regents May meeting.

Teaching excellence in the USG is recognized on the departmental and program level by the System’s Academic Affairs office while individuals are recognized at the USG Foundation’s annual Regents’ Salute to Education awards dinner. Five USG faculty members were presented with The Felton Jenkins Jr. Hall of Fame Faculty Award at the event held last March. All of the awards recognize outstanding faculty whose efforts focus on strengthening the educational experience for students. All recipients are selected from nominations submitted annually by the presidents of USG institutions.

The Lewis F. Rogers Institute for Environmental & Spatial Analysis at GSC is an interdisciplinary teaching, research and public service resource for the North Georgia Region. The Institute promotes environmental education using advanced technology, interdisciplinary instruction, collaborative learning and service to address social, human and environmental issues.

The First Year Composition Program at UGA focuses on the training of writing teachers as well as instruction of first-year students. The program also strives to train future faculty members and writing program administrators.

“These awards allow us to recognize outstanding faculty in the University System of Georgia who are making a tremendous difference in the lives of our students,” said Dr. Linda Noble, the University System’s vice chancellor for Academic Affairs. “We are proud to spotlight these exceptional faculty and programs and their commitment to student learning and success.”

Created in 1996, the Regents’ Awards program recognizes the finest among the University System of Georgia. Exemplary teaching that significantly improves student success, research that demonstrates innovative teaching techniques and programs that enhance student learning are the hallmarks shared by each year’s honorees.
