Teaching Award

Each year, the students initiated into Phi Beta Kappa are asked to submit nominations for the Phi Beta Kappa Teaching Award. In keeping with the Society's concern with academic excellence, students are asked to nominate an outstanding teacher who has positively influenced their experience at BC, either in or outside the classroom. Faculty are selected for the award based on the cumulative nominations from students over multiple years.
