The Jessica Melton Perry Award for Distinguished Teaching in Disciplinary & Professional Writing
This award recognizes teaching that has contributed to the development of student writing within academic and professional fields across the university (other than English). Nominees can be tenure-track or non-tenure track regular faculty currently employed in any school or college of CWRU. This award is designed to recognize instructors of undergraduates who have helped their students publish academic/scholarly work, instructors/mentors of graduate/professional students, and/or instructors of SAGES Departmental Seminars and Senior Capstones (where discipline-specific writing is taught).
The SAGES Excellence in Writing Instruction Award
This award is given annually to an instructor in the SAGES program who has demonstrated outstanding commitment to and success in teaching academic writing to CWRU undergraduates. Nominees may be at any rank, from graduate student writing instructor through tenured full professor, but they must have provided substantial writing instruction as part of one or more SAGES seminars during AY 2016-2017. This award is designed to recognize faculty working in SAGES First and/or University Seminars.
