Roger L. Nichols Excellence in Teaching Award

The Roger L. Nichols Award for Excellence in Teaching is intended to enhance the quality of education in public health by honoring outstanding achievement in teaching at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. The Award shall recognize excellence in classroom instruction, capacity to inspire students and dedication to teaching. Members of the Faculty whose principal employment and primary academic affiliation is the School of Public Health are eligible for the award.

A Committee will review nominations based on student course evaluations and other sources of supporting documentation across the prior three years of teaching experience at the Harvard Chan School of Public Health. In addition to the student course evaluations, the supporting documentation includes data from other sources relevant to evaluating the above criteria for the award, which could include learning assessments, advising scores from graduate exit surveys, publication of educationally orientated articles and books, as well as participation in and promotion of educational processes and reform (e.g. CEP participation) at the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health.

To include your course evaluation in this process, it must be submitted by noon on May 1, 2020. (Please note that students may complete their course evaluation after May 1, 2020 but feedback after that date cannot be considered as part of the Award process.)

Nominees must have three or more years of Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health teaching and advising experiences and be Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health primary faculty. An awardee is not eligible to win this award again for a period of 10 years.
