UT Tyler

The Academy of Distinguished Teachers

The Center for Excellence in Teaching and Learning


During the spring of 2015, President Rodney Mabry approved the creation of The University of Texas at Tyler’s Academy of Distinguished Teachers (the Academy) to recognize and honor outstanding teaching. The original proposal developed by Dr. Neil Gray, Fellow of the University of Texas System Academy of Distinguished Teachers and Dr. Ross Sherman, interim provost, stated:
“The Academy will recognize UT Tyler educators who have demonstrated leadership in education and are committed to improving learning across the university. The Academy will encourage and help sustain pedagogical excellence at UT Tyler by serving as role models for their colleagues, fostering research on university teaching and learning, and advising the institution on teaching policies and practices.”
