Teaching Awards & Recognition

APSA Campus Teaching Award Recognition

Colleges and universities recognize exceptional teaching by presenting faculty members with awards for teaching excellence. The American Political Science Association values excellence in teaching political science and recognizes faculty achievements in teaching. If you are the recipient of a campus teaching award in the 2016-2017 academic year, please let us know

Each year APSA recognizes political science faculty who received teaching awards from their own colleges or universities during the past academic year. APSA features the winners and titles of their awards in the October issue of PS: Political Science and Politics.


APSA Distinguished Teacher Award

The APSA Distinguished Teaching Award honors the outstanding contribution to undergraduate and graduate teaching of political science at two- and four-year institutions. The contribution may span several years or an entire career, or it may be a single project of exceptional impact. The award carries a $1,000 prize.

The award was created on the recommendation of APSA's Teaching and Learning Committee and has been endowed through generous gifts from APSA members. It signals the central role of teaching in the profession.

Nominations are closed.
