Teaching Excellence Review Committee (TERC)
The Teaching Excellence Review Committee (TERC) (formerly CETL), composed of UIC faculty members with demonstrated teaching excellence, reviews applications for one award to recognize excellent teaching and two grants to support faculty and departmental initiatives. These are:
- Teaching Recognition Program (TRP) is a program to recognize and reward documented excellence of UIC faculty in instruction.
- Curriculum and Instructional Grant (CIG) is a seed fund to support faculty initiatives designed to enhance the quality of teaching and learning.
- Departmental Teaching Excellence Award (DTEA) recognizes the commitment to teaching and documented instructional excellence of departments and other academic units.
