The Morgan Chia-Wen Sze and Bobbi Josephine Hernandez Distinguished Teaching Prize will be awarded to recognize professorial faculty for excellence in teaching, and will be awarded alternately over a three-year cycle to faculty in the humanities, social sciences and the natural sciences and mathematics. The donors would like to encourage all award recipients to use a portion of the award to travel anywhere in the world of interest to them and through that travel “to bring the world back to Cornell”.
One $25,000 award will be given annually to a faculty member from one of three areas
- 2019: Natural Sciences and Math
- 2020: Social Sciences
- 2021: Humanities
