The award honors a faculty member whose work in University Core courses has been especially creative and successful in furthering UCC goals, and focuses exclusively on teaching within the Core. An individual plaque, a generous stipend, and additional faculty development support are provided by a fund established for this purpose by Mr. Cooper and his friends and colleagues. The H. Lee Cooper Core Curriculum Teaching Award provides a concrete way of recognizing superior work in and for the University Core Curriculum. It complements an already existing award for students, the Trustee's Distinguished Merit Award, which recognizes superior work by a student in the Core Curriculum. Named for an Evansville civic leader and long-time supporter of education, the award recognizes Mr. Cooper's commitment to the role of liberal arts education in the workplace.
