COLUMBIA, S.C. — After two years of COVID-related virtual celebrations, SCICU’s annual Excellence In Teaching Awards Program will return to an in-person awards dinner on April 5 at the Columbia Metropolitan Convention Center.
“We at SCICU are excited to return to our in-person awards dinner for the Excellence In Teaching Program,” said Jeff Perez, SCICU president and CEO. “We look forward to celebrating the achievements of the 21 faculty award winners who provide an education that is second-to-none and inspire their students to become leaders in their professions and communities.”
2022 marks the 17th year of the SCICU Excellence In Teaching Awards Program. Each year SCICU member colleges and universities use rigorous criteria to select a faculty member to receive the SCICU Excellence In Teaching award. Award recipients receive a framed award certificate and a $3,000 professional development grant from SCICU.
For the first 13 years of the SCICU Excellence In Teaching program, award recipients and their guests were honored at a special dinner in April during S.C. Independent Colleges and Universities Week. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the dinner was cancelled in 2020 and 2021.
