The University makes the following awards annually at Commencement:
The Walter J. Gores Faculty Awards for Excellence in Teaching
The Gores Award is the University’s highest award for excellence in teaching. Gores Awards are made each year to faculty and teaching staff members who have made special contributions to teaching in its broadest sense: lecturing, tutoring, advising, and discussion leading. Ordinarily, one award will be made to a senior faculty member or senior lecturer, one to a junior faculty member, and two to teaching assistants.
Who May Nominate? Any member of the Stanford community may nominate for one or more of these awards. Students are especially encouraged to nominate anyone who has made a special contribution to their education.
Why Nominate? Stanford's quality as an educational institution depends upon the dedication of its faculty, students, and staff. Recognizing those whose extraordinary efforts have made Stanford a better place thanks the award winners and reminds the community of the importance of individual contributions to the institution. Each award carries a cash stipend, a formal citation, and extensive public recognition.
