Alumni Association Awards

The University of Virginia Alumni Association’s

of the faculty who has, over a period of not fewer than ten years, excelled
as a classroom teacher, shown unusual concern for students, and made
significant contributions to the life of the University. Though national
recognition, eminence in research, and quality of publications will not
be overlooked, this award is primarily for the master teacher who has
directed his or her efforts toward superior instruction and enrichment
of life in the University. The award consists of a suitably inscribed and
framed certificate, $10,000 cash, and Life Membership in the Alumni
Association.
