ARIA Excellence in Teaching Award

The Excellence in Teaching Award was initiated in 2007 by the New Awards Committee. This award recognizes excellence in risk management and insurance teaching. Applicants/nominees should have a distinguished record of excellent teaching throughout their academic career. Nominations for the award are welcome. An individual may be nominated by a colleague, who then must confirm with the nominee that they are willing to provide the required materials. A letter outlining the reasons for the nomination will serve as the required letter of recommendation from a colleague. 

This award will be presented only in years when an exceptional candidate is identified. 

Note: If a candidate is not selected during the first year that his/her application is submitted for consideration, the candidate may request that his/her application remain in the pool for consideration in the following year. A candidate’s application may remain in the pool without amendment for a maximum of two additional years after the year in which it is first submitted.
