Sep 04, 2018

Victor S. Sierpina, MDWe could like to congratulate Victor Sierpina, MD for being selected as a recipient of one of the 2018 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Awards. A special reception was held in Austin on August 9, 2018 honoring all of this year's recipients. 

Only a select number of faculty members from across The University of Texas System were chosen for this honor. To win one of these awards is truly a remarkable achievement. This year, 27 faculty members from UT’s 14 academic and health institutions have been named recipients of the 2018 Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award. They each received recognition and a monetary award in recognition of their commitment to student success.

Since 2008, the University of Texas System Board of Regents has annually recognized exemplary educators from every UT institution with a Regents’ Outstanding Teaching Award. The awards honor extraordinary classroom performance and innovation in undergraduate instruction. This is truly a testament to Dr. Sierpina's phenomenal commitment to student education.

Over the last decade, regents have presented more than $19 million to 700 UT educators, making the awards program among the largest in the nation for rewarding outstanding faculty performance. Given the depth and breadth of talent across the UT System, the program also is likely one of the nation's most competitive.

Nominees undergo a series of rigorous evaluations by students, peer faculty and external reviewers. The review panels consider a range of activities and criteria in their evaluations of a candidate's teaching performance, including classroom expertise, curricula quality, innovative course development and student learning outcomes.

The Regents' Outstanding Teaching Awards reinforce the Board of Regents' commitment to ensuring that University of Texas institutions are places of intellectual exploration and discovery, educational excellence and unparalleled opportunity.
