Teachers Insurance and Annuity Association, New York, NY. College Retirement Equities Fund.
This report contains the citations for the 1997 Hesburgh Awards for successful, innovative faculty development programs to enhance undergraduate teaching. The University of Missouri-Columbia, General Education Program, was the program judged to have best met the three award criteria: significance of the program to higher education, appropriate program rationale, and successful results and impact on undergraduate teaching and student learning. The university received the Award for its undergraduate learning program that focused on writing, math reasoning, computer and information proficiency, science lab, undergraduate seminars, and a capstone experience. As a result, in 1997 the campus welcomed the highest-quality freshman class in its history. Certificates of excellence were awarded also to Prince George's Community College (Maryland) for its science and technology resource center; to Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology (Indiana) for its integrated first-year curriculum in science, engineering, and mathematics; to the University of South Carolina for its integrated undergraduate-faculty development program; and to Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) for a faculty development institute.
