Reminder – Call for Applications: 2023-2024 Teaching Recognition Program Award

The Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs is pleased to announce the 2023-2024 Teaching Recognition Program (TRP). The TRP is UIC’s self-nominated, faculty-administered teaching award program.

The TRP offers a $1500 increment to the annual base salary of faculty who have documented their teaching excellence over the past three academic years. This year, we will be recognizing the accomplishments of up to 16 deserving faculty members. All tenured and tenure-track faculty, clinical faculty, and others with a demonstrated long-term commitment to teaching at UIC (such as lecturers and instructors) are eligible to apply. All applicants must hold a teaching appointment that is greater than 49 percent (> 49%) for the past three academic years. A demonstrated long-term commitment is defined as continuous involvement in teaching at UIC during the Fall and Spring semesters of the previous three academic years (2020-2021, 2021-2022 and 2022-2023). Additional information is available on the TRP website.

The deadline for “Intent to Apply” is September 13, 2023 at 11:59 P.M.
The deadline for receipt of applications is October 13, 2023 at 11:59 P.M. We strongly recommend that interested faculty carefully review the guidelines before submitting applications. If you are selected as a recipient for this award, you will be asked to sit on the TRP committee in a future year.

We hope that all eligible faculty will take advantage of this opportunity. If you have any questions about this program or require more information, please contact
