Faculty Teaching Awards

Each year, the Simon Business School awards several prestigious awards to faculty members who exhibit excellence in the classroom and who inspire our students. The awards from the most recent academic year are:

THE GERALD AND DEANNE GITNER PRIZE FOR TEACHING EXCELLENCE

This award was established in 2016 by Gerald Gitner ’68S (MBA) and his wife, Deanne, to recognize a junior faculty member for teaching and research excellence, as well as overall impact on the Simon Business School and the University of Rochester. A committee of faculty and students selects the recipient of the Gitner Prize each year, and the award is presented during Commencement ceremonies. Read more about his story here.
