The Academic Senate’s Committee on Teaching is pleased to announce an initial call for nominations for the 2019 Distinguished Teaching Award (DTA), the highest teaching award on the Berkeley campus. Since 1959, the Distinguished Teaching Award has recognized UC Berkeley faculty for teaching that rises above and beyond the individual class to a sustained performance of excellence. This kind of teaching incites intellectual curiosity in students, inspires departmental colleagues, and makes students aware of significant relationships between the academy and the world at large.

Dear Colleagues,

While we may not have an in-person Staff Appreciation Week event for you today, we do have a fun announcement. Do you have or know kids looking for something to do this summer? Do you want them to keep reading and avoid ‘learning loss’ until school’s back in session? What if there was a way to incentivize them, say, maybe with tickets to our opening Cal football game?
