Patsy J. Mellott Teaching Innovation Award

The Patsy J. Mellott Teaching Innovation Award provides up to $2,500 for one year to individual HHS faculty or small groups of faculty for a wide variety of innovative. projects, including but not limited to the design of new courses, the development of new models for teaching existing courses, the creation of new curricula, and the purchase of equipment to enrich students’ learning in a course or set of courses.  Thus, unlike awards that recognize past teaching accomplishments, the Mellott Award is intended to allow HHS faculty to complete projects that will improve students’ education in the future.

The deadline to submit proposals is announced during the fall semester. The HHS Teaching Awards Committee selects the winning proposal. The award is announced early in the spring semester, and the recipient is recognized during the spring HHS faculty meeting.

For more information about this award, including criteria, procedures and deadlines for application, please contact Tom Berndt, HHS Senior Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Administration.
