Students! Nominate your favorite professor

February 21, 2011

What professor inspires you with their passion for their subject, the care with which they approach their teaching and advising, and the innovative ways they help you learn?

The annual Underkofler Award was established in 1991 to honor Beloit College faculty members who are outstanding teachers.

Because the award recognizes excellence in the classroom, the process starts with nominations by students. To be eligible, a faculty member must have taught at Beloit College for at least three years, and not have won the award during the last two years. (Note that Paul Stanley and Daniel Youd are not on the list because they are recent winners.) The faculty member who is selected will be honored at a special ceremony in the spring.

To make a nomination, email the Office of the Dean of the College by Monday, Feb. 28 at (the subject line should be "attention dean of the college") with the following information:

  • Your name
  • The name of the faculty member you’d like to nominate (see list of those eligible below)
  • In what capacity do you know the nominee? Have you taken classes from him/her?
  • What are the nominee’s special qualifications for the award?
