All Faculty members who hold a full-time tenured or tenure-track appointment are eligible for a Killam Faculty Teaching Prize.

 

Nomination Process: Faculty and students wishing to nominate a faculty member are encouraged to start early and consult their Department Head or Director as the nomination process proceeds. Nominators may contribute to the following documents (PDF):
