University of Waterloo Distinguished Teacher Award

The University of Waterloo's Distinguished Teacher Awards were approved by Senate on December 15, 1975. Since then, three or four awards have been granted annually. The overriding criterion is a record of excellent teaching at the University over an extended period, usually at least five years.

The Distinguished Teacher Award has been set up by the Senate of the University of Waterloo in recognition of the great importance of excellence in teaching at all levels in the University. The award is open to all those who teach students in the University of Waterloo and its federated and affiliated colleges. Recipients are to be chosen from among nominees by a Selection Committee of faculty and students.
