President's Awards for Excellence in Teaching

Award recipients are chosen from each of the schools by a school-established selection committee. Each faculty member so-honored receives a cash award and a remembrance of his or her achievement. The formal honoring of faculty for teaching accomplishments with the President's Awards was begun by former UAB President Charles A. McCallum in 1990.
