Jack and Louise Arthur Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching

The purpose of the Jack and Louise Arthur Award is to honor effective and dedicated teachers. This prestigious award was instituted in 1983 under the former title of "Distinguished Service Award". The award was renamed in 1989 in honor of Jack and Louise Arthur who were true patrons of education. 

To be eligible for the Jack and Louise Arthur Award a nominee must have served at Tarleton State University for at least five years, with a full-time faculty appointment. The award is intended to recognize those who only teach; therefore, no Department Head, Dean, Vice President, or President is eligible to receive the award. Recipients are only eligible to receive the award after five years of receipt of the last award. 

Three nominees are chosen from both the Student Senate and Faculty Senate. The selection is then made by a committee comprised of eight members, five faculty, one from each of the four undergraduate colleges, one graduate faculty, and two student members appointed by the President of the Student Senate.
