Center for Teaching Excellence

Teaching Awards

SMU strives to value, support, and reward effective student-centered teaching, and one of the ways it does so is by recognizing and celebrating faculty members who exemplify teaching excellence. CTE, on behalf of the Provost's office, administers four university-wide teaching awards, and works with the award winners to share innovative and effective ideas with the SMU teaching community.
