Since 1961, a generous award from the Christian R. and Mary F. Lindback Foundation has enabled La Salle to recognize excellence in teaching by members of its full-time faculty. The award is presented to a faculty member whose teaching is characterized by superior knowledge of the subject matter, vitality, and inspiration in its presentation in class, and devotion to helping students realize their potential.
Nominations for the award are invited from those in all divisions and programs of the University. The final selection from those nominations is made by a committee composed of the Associate Provost of Teaching and Learning; the Deans of Arts and Sciences, Business, and Nursing; the President of the Faculty Senate; and the Vice President for Academic Affairs of the Students’ Government Association.
The award is presented at the annual Commencement Ceremonies in May.
