Each year as the Institutional contact for NACTA, you can request a Teaching Award of Merit Certificate for faculty members you wish to recognize for their accomplishments as a teacher. If you have graduate students who teach, you can also request a certificate for your students. The president of NACTA signs these certificates. They are then signed by one of your administrators before being presented on your campus. The recipient of the certificate is determined within your campus.


To request a NACTA Teaching Award of Merit or a Graduate Student Teaching Award of Merit Certificate, complete the form and return it to the NACTA Administrative Team. The certificate will be sent back to you within two weeks. The names of those who receive the Teaching Certificates are published in the September issue of the NACTA Journal.


The letter/email for this certificate request goes out to all the NACTA Institutional contacts in the early spring but is available at any time during the year.  Send your information and inquiries to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
