Dear Colleagues:

As you know, one of the most prestigious awards one can achieve is the STC J. R. Gould Award for Excellence in Teaching.  This year the Award Committee is seeking nominations from you for this award.  Please help us recognize excellence in teaching through this award.

Nominees for the award must have at least 15 years of experience in post-secondary education and have made a primary career in teaching technical communication (not just in administration).  Many in CPTSC are program administrators and, while the award primarily recognizes teaching, those who have done some program administration may be nominated.  Nominees (even retired persons) must have been members of STC for 10 years. You can consult this link to the Jay R. Gould Award Guidelines on the STC web page.  If you have someone in mind to nominate but aren’t sure of his or her eligibility, we can check that for you if you send us the name of the nominee.

If you nominate someone, the committee will contact that person and notify him or her of the nomination and request materials.  The nominations for this year’s award are due by October 15, 2013, and please send nominations to

Thank you!
