Sujack Awards

The Edwin T. and Vivijeanne F. Sujack Awards for Teaching Excellence were established in 1994 in order to take special notice each year of two outstanding teachers in the College of Arts and Sciences. These awards recognize superb teaching of undergraduate students. Faculty winners receive both a plaque and cash award, the latter at a ceremony in April of each year. In addition, each faculty member's home department receives a casha award to be used in support of activities that will embrace teaching at the department level.

Recipients of the award seem to have a common dynamic presence in the classroom, a willingness to try new ways of teaching, and a devotion to students that goes well beyond the call of duty. They embody the Jesuit ideal of higher education in their dedication to high standards, to critical thinking, and to the principle that knowledge must be put to the benefit of humanity.
