C.I. Noll Award for Excellence in Teaching
Exceptional instructors training the next generation of scientists

The C. I. Noll Award is presented annually to an outstanding faculty member within the Eberly College of Science. Nominations are accepted from alumni, faculty, and all students. Faculty may also nominate themselves or another faculty member. The award is designed to recognize a faculty member who has had a positive impact on students. One award will be given to a tenure-track faculty member and one award will be given to an instructional teaching faculty member or lecturer.

Nominations and questions may be sent to Lynne O'Cain, Office of Instruction and Curricula, at lmo11@psu.edu.
