Excellence in Teaching Award

Each year, UNBC recognizes four instructors nominated by students. Two recipients are chosen from the College of Science and Management (CSAM) and two from the College of Arts, Social and Health Sciences (CASHS). A call for nominations is put out each semester.

Completed nomination forms and letters of support (paper or electronic format) are to be submitted to the Centre of Teaching, Learning, and Technology, 3rd floor of the west wing of the Teaching and Learning Building (room 10-3042). Regional students may fax the documents directly to the Centre of Teaching, Learning, and Technology at 250-960-6755.  Deadline for submissions is Friday, March 13th, 2020 by 4:30 pm.


Nomination forms are typically available from the Office of the Vice-President (Academic) and Provost, the Northern Undergraduate Student Society (NUGSS), the Centre for Teaching and Learning, and the Office of Graduate Programs. You can also download one here:

Nominations must be signed by the nominator and a minimum of two students, alumni, or members of the Faculty Association and should include a nomination letter. The nomination letter should be a maximum of two pages in length and should outline the reasons for considering the nominee worthy of this award and why the nominators believe the teacher to be an exceptional teacher.


The University will recognizes the award winners at this spring's Convocation ceremonies and will celebrate their successes at an event in the Fall.  For more information, contact the Centre for Teaching Learning & Technology at local 6509.
