The Arthur "Red" Motley Exemplary Teaching Award is sponsored by a gift from the family and friends of College of Liberal Arts alumnus Arthur Motley and other alumni of the college. It recognizes faculty of the college who are outstanding teachers of graduate and undergraduate students.
The Motley award acknowledges faculty who:
Such faculty provide a model to undergraduate and graduate students through their own research and teaching, and leave an impression by their efforts which alumni recall with appreciation and esteem.
Each award carries a prize of $5,000. At least 1 award is given annually.
At least 5 CLA students (current or former, graduate or undergraduate) must nominate a CLA faculty member for the Motley award.
When the Office for Undergraduate Education has received 5 nominations for a faculty member, the college requests that the faculty member's home department prepare a dossier on the nominee.
The Office for Undergraduate Education contacts the home department of each nominated faculty member and provides guidelines for preparing a complete nomination dossier for the department to complete. Departments are asked to submit the original dossier along with a dossier cover sheet.
The CLA Instructional Awards Committee reviews dossiers and makes a recommendation to the dean. The committee includes representatives from the CLA's Student Board, faculty, alumni, and the CLA student body.
