Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Prize

Main content start

The Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Prize recognizes excellence in teaching and the ability to inspire intellectual and personal development in and beyond the classroom. This may include, but is not limited to, encouraging critical, analytical, and creative thinking, taking an active interest in students as individuals, and influencing the way students think about the world.

Every year, members of Phi Beta Kappa present this award to an outstanding member of the faculty. Nominations are accepted from members of the senior class. The winner is selected by a committee of previous award recipients and Phi Beta Kappa Council members.
