February 9, 2021

Sent on behalf of The American Cultures Center

Dear Faculty, Staff, and Students,

The American Cultures (AC) Center is pleased to invite nominations for the 2021 American Cultures Excellence in Teaching Award. The Teaching Award recognizes a UC Berkeley faculty member whose exceptional approach to teaching an AC course creates impactful and generative classroom environments that enable students to grapple with the complexity of cultures in the United States.

Recipients receive a $2,500 grant and are honored at an annual award ceremony. Award criteria details can be found on the AC Center website. Inquiries about the Teaching Award may be sent to americancultures@berkeley.edu.

Nomination Guidelines
The first stage of this award requires a nomination to be completed and submitted by Friday, March 5, 2021. While the nomination needs to be approved and submitted by the department chair, vice-chair for instruction, or another appropriate official, the nomination itself may be initiated by any member of the campus community (including faculty, staff, and students) as long as the nominee has not already received an American Cultures Teaching Award (see previous recipients).

Warm regards,

The American Cultures Center Staff
