All members of the Academic Senate and non-Senate faculty with continuing appointments are eligible, with the following additional requirements.
A. Nominees must have at least 8 semesters in residence at the time of nomination. The current fall semester does not count towards this requirement. The 8 semesters are typically, but need not be, consecutive.
B. While long years of service are neither necessary nor sufficient for recognition, nominees typically have taught at least 6 regularly scheduled courses (or at least 4 such courses in the case of fulfilling a double course load within the department, e.g., large enrollment courses) in the last 8 semesters in residence. However, if the nominee has been on Active Service-Modified Duties (ASMD) status in the last 8 semesters in residence, the review period can be extended by the length of the ASMD period (e.g. 2 semesters).
C. Only one candidate should be nominated by a department in any year. A candidate with a joint appointment may be nominated by one department, with the consent of the other departments with which the candidate is affiliated. Note this means that the Committee on Teaching (COT) will reach out to departments if there is more than one Stage 1 nomination from a department, so the department can choose which candidate to support.
D. Nominees must be available in either late fall 2023 or early spring 2024 for classroom observations that will occur if they are selected as a Stage 3 finalist.
