Suzanne & Stephen Weiss Award for Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching

“The Teacher Who Changed My Life”

Every year, Tulane University bestows two faculty with one of our most prestigious awards – the Stephen and Suzanne Weiss Presidential Fellowship for Undergraduate Education. As a member of the Tulane Community, you are uniquely positioned to tell us who should win these awards.

  • Who has changed your life?
  • Who has gone the extra mile for you?
  • Who has supported and mentored you in a meaningful way?

All regular, full-time Tulane University faculty are eligible who hold the following academic titles: Assistant Professor, Associate Professor, Professor, Professor of Practice and Senior Professor Practice. Nominees should have achieved success in:

  • Making distinctive contributions to teaching such as challenging and well organized presentations of the subject, adaptability to the learning needs of students, innovative approaches to course materials, creation of scholarly materials for student use, and availability to students outside of class.
  • Influencing students beyond the formal role as a teaching such as advising or mentoring individual students, advising student organizations or groups, serving on teaching and curriculum committees, interacting informally with students.
  • Helping students such as aiding in case of illness or other emergencies, advising students confronted with personal problems.
