To receive an Excellent rating, a faculty member should demonstrate peer recognition of teaching ability and commitment to teaching, e.g. JMU or externally sponsored teaching awards or exceptionally positive reports of peer observation of teaching.
I was designated as an ASQ Fellow in 2012. This is the highest mark of distinction bestowed by the Society and indicates broad recognition by peers, both academic and practitioner, in my primary discipline. My personal citation specifically emphasizes teaching as a component of my contribution to the field: “for outstanding and innovative cross-disciplinary contributions to teaching and research in quality, for promoting social responsibility through quality and process improvement as a form of community service, and for continuing service to the quality profession through ASQ sections, divisions, and interest groups.”
