Teaching MVP Awards

At the end of April, the Office of the Provost launched a student-nominated awards program to recognize faculty and instructors who went above and beyond to provide a high-quality educational experience for their students during the unprecedented Spring 2020 semester. Students were asked to suggest award titles and provide a brief explanation for their nominations. More than 900 nominations were submitted within a 72-hour period. A committee of faculty and administrators reviewed the nominations and recommended their top candidates. The following instructors are the true MVPs of WVU for the Spring 2020 semester.
