Golden Apple Awards for Teaching Excellence

Golden Apple Awards for Teaching Excellence

The UC Riverside School of Business has a tradition of recognizing outstanding faculty as voted on by our students. The Golden Apple awards were founded in 2015 and continue to recognize excellence in the classroom. Beginning in spring 2022, the four annual recipients of this award will also receive $2,500. 

For the Golden Apple Awards, students are asked to vote for the professors in whose classes they had the best overall experience in terms of learning, engagement, teaching style, and innovative teaching methods.
