Jump to Comments

This year we have again received notification that funding to support the Leslie Eliason Excellence in Teaching Award has been given to the Institute by the Intrepid Philanthropy Foundation, which is supported by Karen Payne, a longtime, good friend of Professor Eliason. This award provides us an opportunity each academic year to recognize excellence in teaching by our faculty.

The Leslie Eliason Excellence in Teaching Award is a prestigious Monterey Institute award that recognizes outstanding contributions as a classroom teacher by a faculty member of the Monterey Institute of International Studies.

Regular faculty members from the MIIS community are eligible for consideration.

The award will be announced in late April 2012 and must be used by August 31, 2013, at which time a report summarizing the professional development and expenditures made will be due to the Community Foundation, the group overseeing the disbursement of these funds on behalf of the Payne family.  A short interim report will be due approximately one year after the award.  Faculty recipients of this Excellence in Teaching Award are not eligible to receive the award more than once in a four-year period.
