The College of Criminology and Criminal Justice at Florida State University is proud to announce that five of its distinguished faculty have been nominated for University Teaching and Advising Awards. Dr. Kevin Beaver, Dr. Carter Hay, Dr. Gary Kleck and Dr. Brian Stults have been nominated for Teaching Awards and Dr. Billy Close has been nominated for a Distinguished Teacher Award.

To become eligible for a University Teaching Award, nominees must be outstanding in the many aspects of teaching which contribute to successful teaching and learning. This is a student-oriented award with nominations submitted by students and alumni. If selected, the recipient receives a $2,000 award.

The Distinguished Teacher Award is awarded to a faculty member that has received a University Teaching Award at least five years prior to being nominated for the Distinguished Teacher Award. Successful nominees are those that show continued excellence in teaching for the five years since receipt of the original University Teaching Award. This honor includes a $7,500 award funded by Florida State University.

It is an honor that students and the FSU family have taken note of the fastest growing College on campus and its distinguished faculty. Check back with the College of Criminology’s news feed to learn which nominees are awarded!
