Peltier Innovation in Teaching Award

The nomination deadline is January 26, 2024.

The Peltier Award for Teaching Innovation was established with the NDSU Development Foundation by Joseph and Norma Peltier to recognize outstanding innovation in teaching.  The ideal candidate for the award would be an outstanding educator whose innovative teaching techniques have contributed to enhancing the educational experience of students at North Dakota State University.

To nominate a faculty member for this award, submit a nomination letter (of no more than two pages) addressing the criteria, and three-page CV to NDSU Provost. Finalists will be asked to provide a CV and a letter describing their innovative teaching techniques and detailing teaching activities.

Recipients of these awards are expected to be NDSU employees at the time of the Celebration of Faculty Excellence ceremony.
