Teacher of the Year
The coveted Teacher of the Year Award is presented to a full time faculty member who has contributed to academic excellence at Dixie State through knowledge in his/her area of expertise, exceptional teaching ability, dedication to the educational pursuits of students, and the providing of service and inspiration outside of the classroom. The Teacher of the Year is nominated by the campus community at large, then all nominees are contacted and asked to answer questions specific to this category. These materials are reviewed and narrowed to a field of ten finalists by a preliminary screening committee. The ten finalists are then passed to the Vice President of Academics who narrows the finalists to five, assembles a committee to review all submitted materials of the five finalists, and then the committee selects the winner.
