there a faculty member that has made a difference in your life? Do you
know of an outstanding faculty member whose work consistently exceeds your
expectations and you feel motivates and inspires the best in all of us?
Each year, Palomar College is honored to recognize one deserving full-time

knowledge, creativity, and dedication illuminates the very best of teaching
at Palomar College. The award may be received only once during a
Professor’s lifetime of teaching. Candidates who accept their
nominations submit materials related to their teaching and are evaluated in
their classrooms. Distinguished Faculty Award Committee members interview
finalists and select the honorees. The most outstanding and
exceptional candidates will be recognized as this year's recipient of the
Distinguished Faculty Award for Excellence in Teaching.
Honorees receive a plaque, are recognized at faculty orientation, receive a
