2011 RSEC-SRM Teaching Award Nominations Due - November 1!!
The deadline for submission of nominations for the Range Science Education Council (RSEC) - SRM Teaching Awards is rapidly approaching. If you know someone who teaches undergraduate Range Science courses that is a truly excellent teacher or who inspired you in your preparation to become a Range Science professional, please consider nominating that person for one of the Range Science Education Council's teaching awards.

The RSEC is soliciting nominations of faculty/instructors teaching Range Science courses for 2 teaching awards to be presented at the 2011 SRM Meeting in Billings, MT. The Outstanding Undergraduate Teaching Award recognizes excellence in teaching and advising that has extended over the course of many years. The Early Career Undergraduate Teaching Award recognizes excellence in teaching and advising Range Management students by faculty/instructors in the early stages of their teaching careers (less than 10 years experience). Nominees are eligible only if they were involved in undergraduate teaching during the period September 1, 2009 and September 1, 2010. Recipients will receive a monetary award from the Range Science Education Council and recognition by both the RSEC and SRM.
