Amina El-Ashmawy, professor of chemistry at Collin College, has been chosen Outstanding Community Colleges Professor—one of four in separate categories of 2015 Professor of the Year, awarded by the Council for Advancement and Support of Education (CASE) and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching.
Here is the official announcement. (You can scroll down for more information and a photo of the winner in each category.)
Here is a nice article in Inside Higher Ed.
The U.S. Professors of the Year program salutes "the most outstanding undergraduate instructors in the country—those who excel in teaching and positively influence the lives and careers of students. Sponsored by CASE and the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching, it is the only national program to recognize excellence in undergraduate teaching and mentoring," according to the official statement.
All undergraduate teachers in the United States, of any academic rank at any type of undergraduate institution, are eligible for the award. Entries are judged by top U.S. educators and other active participants in education.
The Council for Advancement and Support of Education launched the awards program in 1981. That same year, the Carnegie Foundation for the Advancement of Teaching began hosting the final round of judging, and in 1982, became the primary sponsor.
