Distinguished Teachers of the Year
Browse the recipients dating from 1969 through 2013.

The Distinguished Teacher of the Year Award is Florida Atlantic University's highest teaching honor. Introduced in 1969, this award is made on the basis of scholarship, research and publications, classroom teaching, academic counseling, and University and community service. The winner is selected by students. The recipient receives a cash award and delivers the keynote address at Honors Convocation in the spring and Freshman Convocation in the fall. Nominations are made by students in January; each college's Student Advisory Committee selects the finalist from its college. One DTOY winner is then selected from the field of nine finalists by the University Student Advisory Committee on the basis of his or her portfolio and an in-person interview. The title listed for each honoree is the one that he or she held at the time the award was made.
