Roger and Alice Mangan Excellence in Teaching Award
In appreciation of the need to recognize excellence in teaching, the Faculty Development and Welfare Committee is seeking nominations from faculty, staff and students of Upper Iowa University on behalf of the Roger and Alice Mangan family. The monetary award of $1000 each will be given to two faculty, preferably one Junior and one Senior faculty. The award focuses exclusively on teaching, thus highlighting faculty’s classroom experiences through the eyes of students.
Electronic nominations are now open and will be accepted through the second Friday in March at 5:00 p.m. CT. All nominations must be submitted via email to [email protected]. Please write “Mangan Award” in the subject line of your email.

Candidates must be current full-time tenured or tenure track faculty. (Self-nominations will not be accepted).
