Nominations sought for Book of Great Teachers
Nominations are being accepted through Sept. 17 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 those nominated by students, alumni and colleagues, and professors with 10 years of service to the University who have been honored with the Charles B. Murphy Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award, recognized as Indiana Professor of the Year or named by the trustees as distinguished professors of teaching.
The nomination process for the book occurs every five years. The last ceremony was held in 2013, when 68 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 cie.purdue.edu through Sept. 17.
New initiates will be recognized in December.
