The Lindback Distinguished Teaching Award

Every year, Arcadia University selects a winner of the Lindback Distinguished Teaching Award (LDTA) according to the guidelines of the Christian R. & Mary F. Lindback Foundation. The guidelines stipulate that:

  1. No recipient may receive the award more than once while on the faculty at Arcadia.
  2. The recipient must be at least a half-time permanent faculty member who has served in such a capacity at Arcadia for each of the preceding three years.

Every student is invited to submit a nomination. Nominations are requested early in the spring semester and the award is presented at Honors Convocation.
