Since 1992, the Johns Hopkins Alumni Association has annually honored faculty throughout the university who excel in the art of teaching. The nomination and selection methods differ by school, but students must be involved in the process. Besides the the Alumni Association award, the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences and the Whiting School of Engineering offer additional teaching awards to professors who inspire their students and to teaching assistants who demonstrate expertise in the classroom.
For Faculty awards, any professor, instructor, or lecturer who has taught at any level on a regular basis in the Krieger School of Arts and Sciences or the Whiting School of Engineering for at least three years may be nominated. Faculty are ineligible to win the same award more than once in three years.
Undergraduate and graduate students, faculty members, and alumni may submit nominations. Nominations must include the name and department of the professor, as well as a description of what makes this teacher different from other good teachers at Homewood. Tell us about style and effectiveness, giving specific, concrete examples.
For Teaching Assistant awards, nominations must include the name and department of the TA, as well as a description of his or her style and effectiveness. Please use specific, concrete examples.
