Professor of the Year
The Professor of the Year recognizes the outstanding faculty who excel in teaching and positively influencing the lives and careers of Saddleback College students.
Nominations close Wednesday, February 3 at 11:59p
How are recipients chosen?
Professors are nominated by members of the Saddleback College community. The majority of nominations come from current and former students. Professors may not nominate themselves.
Nominated professors are asked to submit additional documents to a selection committee comprised of current students. A faculty or staff member not associated with any of the candidates may also be asked to serve on the committee.
The selection committee will take all of the nominations, as well as the additional documentation, to score and select the successful candidate for the award. Nominations will account for 50% of the scoring.
Awards will be given to one (1) full-time and one (1) associated professor.
