USC Teaching Honour Roll


The Teaching Honour Roll, presented by the University Students’ Council, is awarded annually to Western’s best instructors. The honour roll is used to recognize the exceptional efforts and contributions of Western instructors. In order to receive honour roll standing, an instructor must receive a cumulative average of 6.3 or higher out of 7.0 for the first 14 questions on the UWO Instructor & Course Evaluations. Evaluations are completed by students for every course taught at Western and it’s affiliate colleges. If an instructor teaches multiple courses, the cumulative average for all courses taught is calculated and used for determining honour roll status.
