Teaching Excellence Award
OBJECTIVE: The Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs (ACBSP) recognizes the significance of the classroom teacher to the mission of degree-granting institutions. It is for this reason that the Associate and Baccalaureate/Graduate Degree Boards of Commissioners have established a Teaching Excellence Award to recognize diverse individuals who exemplify excellence in teaching.
Accreditation Council for Business Schools and Programs is the only specialized accrediting body for business schools that presents an award recognizing excellence in teaching open to the entire membership.
ELIGIBILITY: Teaching faculty at ACBSP member institutions are eligible to be nominated. Any individual may nominate an eligible faculty member. Self-nominations are also encouraged. Previous recipients of the award will be ineligible for nomination for a period of five years.
TWO AWARDS: One award recipient is selected from among all associate degree school candidates, and one recipient is selected from among all baccalaureate/graduate degree school candidates.
REGIONAL AWARD RECOGNITION: Each applicant is first a candidate in a regional competition. Once submitted to the ACBSP office, the applications received will be sent directly to the regional president. A committee review follows and a regional recipient selected from all associate degree applicants and a regional recipient from all baccalaureate degree applicants. The Teaching Excellence Award recipients for each of the ten regions are anticipated to attend the annual conference, where they will receive regional recognition, a medallion, and a $100 check. They will also be announced as nominees for the International Teaching Excellence Award. The annual conference fee will be waived for regional Teaching Excellence Award recipients.
INTERNATIONAL AWARD RECOGNITION: The International Teaching Excellence Award recipient will be honored at the “Salute to Regions” luncheon, where he/she will be presented with an engraved wooden plaque and a check in the amount of $500. An award is presented to an individual from an associate degree institution and an award is presented to an individual from a baccalaureate/graduate degree institution. The names of the two international recipients will be engraved on a permanent honor roll plaque that hangs on the “Wall of Fame” at the ACBSP office in Overland Park, Kansas.
APPLICATION: The application deadline for the 2012-2013 academic year is January 31, 2013. All applications should be received at firstname.lastname@example.org.
