Golden Apple Award for Teaching Excellence

The Golden Apple Awards is an annual student-voted teaching award recognizing outstanding faculty.

In judging the effectiveness of teaching, students were asked to consider a professor's ability to teach their material with force and logic, while simultaneously making it understandable for students. Students also weighed the professor's attitude, mentorship ability and their inspirational qualities.
