The Collins Award

The Collins Outstanding Professor Award is generously provided by the Carr P. Collins Foundation in order to recognize and honor outstanding teachers at Baylor University. Baylor's current Senior Class elects the Collins Outstanding Professor for each school year.

The Collins Professor receives a cash award of $10,000, recognition in University publications, citation on a plaque, and recognition at the spring commencement. The Collins Professor will also be required to deliver a special lecture on a subject of his or her choice. The lecture will be published and made available to the University community.

Please visit the 2016 Collins Outstanding Professor Award Nomination Form to nominate your outstanding professor.
