Eligible awardees must be full-time members of one of the School's departments/units and they must be at the Associate or Full Professor level, and must have been at UB for at least 5 years. The award recognizes outstanding teaching performance during the past 5 years. A recipient may receive the award multiple times, but not more than once in 5 years.
