"LSSU has a great reputation for placing students in graduate and professional schools. Many of my classmates from LSSU are now pursuing graduate and professional studies at some of the finest universities in Canada and the United States."

"The student-faculty interaction and the ability to conduct research at the undergraduate level really helped me to achieve success in a competitive graduate program. My professors at LSSU were always interested in helping us succeed."

Luke Fera of Sault Ste. Marie graduated from LSSU in 2006 with a degree in biology and is now working toward a master's degree in epidemiology at University of Western Ontario in London. He plans to continue his studies in the medical sciences.

CRITERIA: Please write an essay supporting your nomination by addressing as may of these criteria as possible.

The Distinguished Teacher Award was established at Lake Superior State University in 1958. It is the most prestigious award that can be bestowed upon an LSSU faculty member. It is also typically a once-in-a-lifetime recognition of outstanding achievement as a teacher.

A Distinguished Teacher at LSSU may be popular—both among students and faculty colleagues—but popularity is not what distinguishes the Distinguished Teacher. A Distinguished Teacher

  • demonstrates command of his or her subject matter,
  • explains difficult concepts clearly,
  • utilizes creative and innovative methods in order to engage students,
  • generates excitement and enthusiasm for the subject,
  • treats students fairly and respectfully,
  • assists students both inside and outside the classroom,
  • maintains challenging standards,
  • inspires students to expect more of themselves, and
  • serves as a good role model for students, faculty colleagues, and others.

A Distinguished Teacher will display all of these individual characteristics in a way that touches and changes lives. Students will likely be forever grateful to a Distinguished Teacher, for this person will have expanded their horizons and helped them realize more of their potential.
