Distinguished Teacher Awards


The Distinguished Teacher Awards were established in 1975 by the University of Waterloo Senate to recognize excellence in teaching at all levels in the University. The award is open to everyone who teaches students at the University of Waterloo and its federated and affiliated colleges. Recipients are chosen from among nominees by a Selection Committee of faculty and students.

Four Distinguished Teachers are honoured each year. Three of the awards are designated for teachers who hold full-time faculty appointments. One award is for part-time faculty, teaching assistants, distance education tutor-markers, lab instructors, or those in similar teaching roles.
