Professors Iverson and Stanton Win 2011 Regents' Outstanding Teaching Award

The Board of Regents of the UT System has selected Chemistry and Biochemistry professors Brent Iverson and John Stanton to receive the 2011 Regents' Outstanding Teaching Award.


Offered annually in recognition of faculty members at the nine University of Texas System academic institutions who have demonstrated extraordinary classroom performance and innovation in undergraduate instruction, the Regents' Outstanding Teaching Awards are the Board of Regents' highest honor. With monetary awards that range from $15,000 for contingent faculty (including adjunct faculty, lecturers and instructional assistants) to $30,000 for tenured faculty members, the Regents' Outstanding Teaching Awards are among the largest in the nation for rewarding outstanding faculty performance. Given the depth and breadth of talent across the UT System, the awards program is likewise one of the nation's most competitive.


Faculty members undergo a series of rigorous evaluations by students, peer faculty and external reviewers. The review panels consider a range of activities and criteria in their evaluations of a candidate's teaching performance, including classroom expertise, curricula quality, innovative course development and student learning outcomes.
Established by the Board of Regents in 2008, the Regents' Outstanding Teaching Awards complement a wide range of Systemwide efforts that underscore the Board of Regents' commitment to ensuring the UT System is a place of intellectual exploration and discovery, educational excellence and unparalleled opportunity.
