Opal Goolsby Outstanding Teaching Award Voting
It’s the time of year again when we take a moment and honor our hard working faculty members through nomination for the Opal Goolsby Outstanding Teaching Award! The Opal Goolsby Award is a traditional recognition of our very best teaching on the HBU campus. Some of the best judges of great teaching are our students. Student Government Association conducts nominations each Spring for faculty representatives from each of the colleges and schools. A selection committee with representatives from Student Government Association, the faculty Professional Development Committee and the Provost’s Office examine the record of accomplishment for each nominee and carefully select the faculty member who best represents the ideals of outstanding teaching. We’re proud to shine the spotlight on these wonderful examples of wisdom and inspiration on the HBU campus. List of former Opal Goolsby Award recipients.
