Since 1995, the CTE has sponsored three UVA Distinguished Teaching Professorships, funded through a special endowment originating from a National Endowment for the Humanities Special Challenge Grant. This program has aimed to fulfill these objectives:
- Support and reward humanities faculty who actively analyze the impact of their teaching on students’ learning
- Encourage and support outstanding humanities faculty in developing projects to share knowledge and expertise
- Recognize both teaching and research as valid aspects of scholarship
- Reward proven excellence in teaching
The program is currently being reviewed to ensure it best meets the needs of UVA’s humanities faculty and their students. Please check back later in the fall for more information on the 2018-19 application cycle.
