To recognize sustained exceptional teaching and high quality scholarship among the University’s faculty, two awards were given every other year – in one year, Distinguished Teaching, and in the next year, Research & Creative Activity – until 2005 when the awards merged and became The Chancellor’s Award for Distinguished Achievement as a Creative Teacher and Scholar. The Academic Deans consider nominations from schools and colleges and provide three recommendations to the Chancellor. The award recipient is named at Fall Convocation and a photo gallery of recipients is on display at The Mary Couts Burnett Library.

This award began in 1999, when TCU alumni Linda and Mark Wassenich created a fund to honor TCU faculty and staff who have made mentoring an everyday aspect of their lives and impacted student lives as a result. The award celebrates all those who serve as role models, advisors and guides to students.
