John G. and Jeanne McCoy Teaching Excellence Professorship

The four-year designation, which includes an annual salary supplement, was established in 1993 as part of the McCoy Endowment for Teaching Excellence, which was donated by John G. McCoy '35, and his late wife, Jeanne. McCoy Professors are selected by an outside review committee made up of professors from sister colleges in Ohio who themselves have been recognized for their teaching ability. Finalists for the award participate in an extensive review that includes the development of a teaching portfolio, repeated observations of their classroom teaching, and interviews with students in their classes.
