Call for Nominations: 2014 E.D. Smith Award for Distinguished Teaching and Educational Service
Dietrich College is accepting nominations for the 2013-2014 Elliott Dunlap Smith Award for Distinguished Teaching and Educational Service. As implied by the title of the award, the leading criterion should be that a nominee shall have achieved distinction as a teacher and educator in the college, and perhaps, more broadly, also in the university, higher education in general, and/or his or her discipline.
Last year's winner of the Smith Award was Rebecca Nugent, associate professor of statistics.
Nugent was recognized for establishing a reputation at Carnegie Mellon as a distinguished instructor and caring mentor and for developing and revising several upper-level statistics courses. Read the full story.
Preliminary nominations are due November 4, 2013 and should consist of a letter (2 pages, maximum, signed by at least three faculty, students, or staff), submitted to Joanne Ursenbach, c/o the Dietrich College Dean’s Office, Baker Hall 154.
