Awards and Grants

SMU strives to value, support, and reward effective student-centered teaching.

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.
