Residence Life and Student Housing

HOPE Award

Each year since 1998, Residence Life and Student Housing (RLSH) has encouraged students living on campus to honor their outstanding professors by nominating them for the HOPE Professor of the Year Award. HOPE stands for "Honoring Our Professor's Excellence." Nominations for the HOPE Award are based on the following criteria:

  • Promotes learning
  • Passionate about teaching
  • Engages with students outside the classroom
  • Acts as a student advocate

Since 1998, over 550 professors have been recognized by students as HOPE professors. Thirty-one of those professors are considered Distinguished HOPE professors, having been nominated five times or more.
