Since 1988, The Provost’s Award for Teaching Excellence by Non-Standing Faculty has been awarded to two members of Penn’s associated faculty or academic support staff, one in the non-health schools and one in the health schools. The Provost’s Award for Distinguished Ph.D. Teaching and Mentoring has been awarded to two members of Penn’s standing or associated faculty in any school offering the Ph.D. since 2004.
