The University of Georgia Teaching Academy is a community of scholars, committed to promoting and celebrating teaching and learning. Membership in the Teaching Academy is not only an honor; it provides an opportunity for faculty to enrich their commitment to teaching and learning. The Academy seeks to promote faculty leadership in teaching and learning, to advocate for effective educational environments, and to foster a community of scholars.
Member status in the Teaching Academy carries with it the expectation of a supportive role in pursuit of the Academy’s mission and goals. Membership is by invitation from the members of the Academy. New members are selected from faculty at the University of Georgia who have demonstrated over a period of not less than five years a significant commitment to the teaching-learning enterprise.
Members are expected to support the mission of the Academy. Supportive activities include serving on committees, participating in teaching/faculty development projects, and contributing to other initiatives the Academy may undertake.
