The Lorrie Ryan Memorial Scholarship is awarded by the CMU Excellence in Teaching Award committee to a full-time CMU faculty member via the Excellence in Teaching Award nomination process.
The nominee must demonstrate a strong teaching ethic in the classroom as evidenced by peer and alumni recommendations, exemplify a sense of community within the classroom, and who also personify respect and inspiration while being a positive role model.
The Excellence in Teaching Award committee who selects this winner is comprised of CMU faculty and follows criteria and procedures for selecting award recipients approved by the Academic Senate. This award is announced every year in March at the Faculty Excellence Exhibition held in the UC Rotunda.
This is an endowed award and results in a monetary award to a faculty member each year. To contribute to this endowment in the name of Lorrie Ryan, please contact CETL.
