Exemplary Teacher of the Year Award

This award recognizes faculty who have been nominated by their institution's leaders for exceptional service to the school and excellence in education. Learning and sharing news about the exciting work faculty within the United Methodist network are doing every day is a privilege for GBHEM. We encourage all of our institution leaders to submit a nomination letter for the most deserving faculty member at their school.

Faculty members nominated for Exemplary Teacher of the Year will receive their award during the spring semester only. All nominations must be submitted to no later than April 15 each year. Nominations must include the recipient's name, title, and a brief explanation for the nomination. Awards will be mailed out on the 1st of each month during the spring semester beginning February 1 and ending on May 1.

NOTE: The Exemplary Teacher Award and The Scholar/Teacher of the Year Award were consolidated into the Exemplary Teacher of the Year Award starting in the 2017-18 academic year.
