The AGLSP Annual Faculty Award is offered each year by the Association to honor an outstanding faculty member who teaches within graduate liberal studies (GLS). The award was established by the Association’s Board of Directors in 1991 to recognize outstanding faculty who exemplify the qualities of interdisciplinary, liberal teaching and who have participated significantly in teaching or advising students and/or have actively participated in other faculty service in a graduate liberal studies program.
The award is a prestigious recognition of an individual associated with a member program who has made a considerable contribution to interdisciplinary liberal studies teaching and advising. The recipient will receive a plaque and $1,000 cash award at the Association’s Annual Conference and will make a brief presentation upon receiving the award. Recipient’s conference registration and lodging are provided by the Association; the recipient’s home program is responsible for transportation and additional expenses. The recipient’s remarks will be posted on the AGLSP website.
