Kemp Teaching Award Ceremony to Honor Exemplary Faculty Member

April 5, 2021

BLOOMINGTON, Ill. — The 2022 recipient of the Kemp Foundation Award for Teaching Excellence, Illinois Wesleyan’s highest teaching honor, will be announced in a prerecorded ceremony available to view online on Wednesday, April 14. 

Selected by the faculty Promotion and Tenure Committee and nominated by members of the campus community, the Kemp Award recognizes a faculty member who brings spirit, passion and scholarship to the art of teaching. Recipients are seen as indispensable to their discipline, enriching the University’s intellectual life within and beyond the classroom. 

The current Kemp Award winner, Professor of History Tom Lutze, will give an address during The Kemp Foundation's Teaching Excellence Award Ceremony, which replaces the traditional Honors Day Convocation. Retiring faculty will also be honored.

Student inductees into Phi Kappa Phi and Phi Beta Kappa, as well as other student honorees and award recipients, will be acknowledged by inclusion in the traditional program booklet that will be published online at the end of April.
