Meramec Awards

Meramec Faculty Lecture Award

The St. Louis Community College at Meramec Faculty Lecture Award is designed to honor a member of the faculty for outstanding community college teaching. The honor affords the faculty member the opportunity to speak to his or her colleagues and others on the role and importance of the community college.

Each year in the late spring, a full-time faculty member is selected by his or her peers to deliver a lecture the following year. The subject of the lecture relates the mission and role of the community college to some aspect of American society, national or local. The criteria for selection includes excellence of achievement in instruction, enthusiasm for teaching in the community college, and evidence of concern for community college students.

The selection committee consists of the Meramec Campus President and the three most recent Faculty Award recipients.

Below, you'll find the recipients of this award.
