Celebrate Teaching! Month

Celebrate Teaching! Month honors the hard work of UNC Gillings School of Global Public Health faculty and staff.

Throughout the month of February, events are held to recognize outstanding faculty through the Teaching Innovation Awards and offer teaching and advising resources. Read more about the history of the Celebrate Teaching! Month.

Students vote for faculty members who “improve the learning environment by integrating new technologies, engaging students in interactive activities, and introducing and incorporating progressive curriculum ideas into the classroom.” Each recipient receives $1,000 to use towards professional development.
