University System of Georgia: Regents' Awards
Each year the University System of Georgia (USG) recognizes teaching excellence with a variety of awards. Faculty cannot apply directly to the USG; instead, our UNG nominees are those who have won the UNG teaching award for Online Teaching, Distinguished Teaching, and SoTL.
- Regents’ Teaching Excellence Awards for Online Teaching
- Felton Jenkins Jr Hall of Fame Faculty Awards (formerly Regents' Teaching Excellence Award)
- Regents’ Scholarship of Teaching and Learning Awards
The Governor's Teaching Fellows Program was established by Zell Miller, governor of Georgia, 1991-1999, to provide Georgia's higher education faculty with expanded opportunities for developing important teaching skills. The program is offered through the Institute of Higher Education at the University of Georgia (UGA).
Faculty cannot apply directly to UGA; instead, they must apply to be the University of North Georgia (UNG) nominee and be chosen to represent our university. This nomination process is being facilitated by the UNG Center for Teaching, Learning, and Leadership (CTLL).
This program fosters a community of learners around the scholarship of teaching and learning (SoTL) and provides support while participants design and implement a classroom-based research project. The USG SoTL Fellows Program is offered through the USG Office of Faculty Development.
