The Office of Student Success and Belonging invites nominations for the 2023 Outstanding First-Year Seminar Instructor Award to honor UIC instructors who have demonstrated exemplary instruction and curriculum development in first-year seminars and have made a positive impact on students, inspiring and scaffolding student learning, development and success.

OSSB plans to honor two recipients who will receive:

  2. Complimentary registration up to $500 to the Annual Conference on the First-Year Experience or another conference that focuses on undergraduate student success.
  3. Recognition at the Spring First-Year Seminar Summit at UIC, including the presentation of a plaque during the Summit.
