The U.S. Professor of the Year program honors the nation’s best undergraduate professors—those who excel in teaching and positively influence the lives and careers of students. Sponsored by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, it is the only national program to recognize excellence in undergraduate teaching and mentoring.
The Carnegie Foundation and CASE select national and state winners who demonstrate extraordinary dedication to undergraduate teaching through:
- Impact on and involvement with undergraduate students,
- A scholarly approach to teaching and learning,
- Contributions to undergraduate education in the institution, community and profession
- Support from colleagues and former undergraduate students
Beginning January 2016, the awards program is on temporary hiatus as part of a strategic planning process.
