University Teaching Awards Recipients

The University Teaching Awards were first conferred in 1992 with the creation of the Charles Deering McCormick University Professorship of Teaching Excellence. They were then expanded in 1994 to include the Charles Deering McCormick University Distinguished Lectureship and Clinical Professorship, and then again in 2000 to include The Alumnae of Northwestern Teaching Professorship.
