Nominations sought for Book of Great Teachers

August 16, 2013  

Nominations are being accepted for Purdue University's Book of Great Teachers, which honors outstanding teaching faculty who have demonstrated sustained excellence in the classroom.

The Book of Great Teachers, a permanent wall display in the west foyer of the Purdue Memorial Union, was first unveiled in 1999. The book bears the names of past and present faculty members who have devoted their lives to excellence in teaching and scholarship. Honorees include past recipients of universitywide teaching excellence awards and those nominated by students, alumni and colleagues.

The nomination process for the book occurs every five years. The last ceremony was held in 2008, when 49 faculty members were added to the book.

To be eligible for nomination, professors and former professors on the West Lafayette campus must have served on the Purdue faculty for at least 15 years. Nominations may be made at through Aug. 30.

New initiates will be recognized in the fall of 2013.
