Utah State University Carnegie Professors

Created by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) in 1981, the U.S. Professors of the Year program is the only national award program that recognizes college professors for their teaching. It is administered jointly with the Carnegie Foundation and TIAA-CREF and is supported by the higher education community throughout the United States, including more than 25 higher education associations.

Both national and state winners are chosen on the basis of their extraordinary dedication to undergraduate teaching, determined by excellence in the following four areas: impact on and involvement with undergraduate students; scholarly approach to teaching and learning; contributions to undergraduate education in the institution, community, and profession; and support from colleagues and current and former undergraduate students.
