Nominate your great instructor or advisor for a TREC award!

The Wilkes University Teacher Recognition and Effectiveness Committee (TREC) is accepting award nominations for outstanding teaching, advising, and student support.

Awards range from the distinguished Carpenter Award and the Outstanding New Faculty Award to recognition for innovative teaching, outstanding advising, and incorporating multiculturalism into the curriculum.

Don’t forget the excellent adjuncts and academic support staff who you know – there are specific awards in both of those categories.

A new addition this year is the Lifetime Achievement Award, which recognizes a longtime member of the Wilkes community who has impacted colleagues and students throughout their whole career at Wilkes University.  Eligible persons include faculty or staff members who have been full-time employees of the university for at least 15 years.

Detailed criteria for each award category can be found on the TREC website and on the nomination form.  Students, faculty, and staff can submit nominations.

Submit your nominations via this online form.  Nominations will be accepted through January 27, 2023.
