Teaching Recognition Program

Two swinging '60s professors, one woman and one man, dance on a field of trophies in celebration of winning a Teaching Recognition Program Award.

The Teaching Recognition Program (TRP) is UIC's self-nominated, faculty-administered teaching award program.

Offered through the Office of the Provost and Vice Chancellor for Academic Affairs, the TRP offers a $1500 increment to the annual base salary of faculty who have documented their teaching excellence over the past three academic years. All tenured and tenure-track faculty, clinical faculty, and others with a demonstrated long-term commitment to teaching at UIC (such as lecturers and instructors) may be eligible to apply. We hope that all eligible faculty will take advantage of this opportunity.

For more information about eligibility, deadlines and application criteria, please review the Guidelines and Application Process below.

We strongly recommend that interested faculty carefully review these materials before submitting applications.
