Piper Awards

Each year the University of Houston-Clear Lake Piper Award Committee, composed of an equal number of students and faculty, selects one professor to be honored for excellence in teaching. This professor then represents the university in competition for the Minnie Stevens Piper Award, which recognizes college and university instructors across the state of Texas.

Both students and faculty are encouraged to submit nominations for this honor. Blank forms and boxes for the completed forms are located at the main entrance of all UH-Clear Lake buildings.

If you would like to honor an outstanding professor or colleague, fill out a nomination form available at either at one of the UHCL main entrances or online, sign and submit it.
