Award-Winning Instructors

Kent State University annually recognizes outstanding achievement in classroom teaching by offering awards to faculty. Six faculty from the Department of Physics have been recipients of these teaching awards.

The A&S Distinguished Teaching Awards (A&S-DTA), are chosen by the Student Advisory Council, an organization made up of all the departments in the College of Arts and Sciences. Teachers are chosen as a result of a call for nominations that go out to the entire student campus population.
