POD | CASE Nominations for U.S. Professor of the Year

As part of POD's exciting new partnership with CASE (Council for Advancement and Support of Education), as approved by the Core Committee, the following announcement is being sent to all POD members. If you would like to be removed from similar announcements in the future, please send an email to with OPT OUT in the subject heading.

Good afternoon, POD members!


Do you have an outstanding professor at your institution who deserves national recognition for his or her extraordinary work in undergraduate teaching?


Consider nominating this educator for a 2013 U.S. Professors of the Year award—the only national initiative designed to recognize excellence in undergraduate teaching and mentoring.


The deadline for entries is April 15.


While winning the award will bring much acclaim to your professor, it will also put your institution on the national stage, strengthen community interest and build public support for your academic programs.

Key facts and information about the awards program, now in its 33rd year, include:


  • The program is open to educators at four-year and two-year institutions in the 50 states, the District of Columbia, Guam, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
  • Each campus may nominate up to three professors.
  • Nominees compete with their peers in one of the following categories (based on the Carnegie classification of their institution):

Outstanding Baccalaureate Colleges Professor

Outstanding Community Colleges Professor

Outstanding Doctoral and Research Universities Professor

Outstanding Master’s Universities and Colleges Professor


Every institution has a great professor, and I hope you will consider submitting a nomination or sharing this information with others at your institution who may be interested in entering a nomination.


There is still time to nominate but please don’t hesitate as the deadline is fast approaching! Please feel free to call me at 202-478-5680 or email me at with any questions about the awards.
