The Teaching Awards Committee consists of volunteers and elected MSU and SRA members, who assist in the nomination process and planning of the ceremony at the end of the year. Nomination periods took place in both first and second semesters.  Nearly 1000 nominations were made by undergraduate students in each semester. The committee compiled the nominations to discover trends from each faculty, then conducted interviews and class visits in the later stages of the Teaching Awards Process.
