WUSA Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award: Nomination Form

The Waterloo Undergraduate Student Association (WUSA) Excellence in Undergraduate Teaching Award is presented every year to professors who have demonstrated an outstanding contribution to undergraduate student learning. The WUSA Teaching Award recognizes non-conventional teaching techniques, opportunities for experiential learning, and a long-term commitment and dedication towards ensuring academic success for undergraduate students. The strength of nominations, including specificity in describing actions the instructor has taken, strongly determine which instructors may go forward to the next step of the awards process.
