Faculty Nominations Needed

Honor Your Favorite Professor

Nominations are being sought from the Culver-Stockton College community for the
Helsabeck Prize for Excellence in Teaching.


The Helsabeck Prize, established in 1980, is a cash prize of $1,000 and will be awarded at Honors Day. Your help is needed to identify a current faculty member who, in your judgment, exhibits those qualities that mark the truly outstanding teacher. Since Culver-Stockton is, above all things, a teaching institution, awards for excellent teaching speak to the very heart of the college’s work.

While definitions of excellent teaching will vary, frequently identifying qualities include the following: knowledge and proficiency in the subject area; creative approaches to the subject matter; ability to nurture interest, enthusiasm and responses in students; clarity of educational objectives and course expectations; maintenance of high expectations and standards; openness to other points of view; fairness; and effective timely feedback to
students. The winner will be chosen by a panel of faculty, students and administrators.

You are invited to submit a nomination and the reasons your nominee deserves the award to Dr. Lauren Schellenberger, Interim Dean of the College, Henderson Hall ( academicdean@culver.edu ). Nominations will be accepted through Friday, March 1,
