Nominations (by Professors, Teachers, etc.)

​This strategy has proved to be highly effective at CSU Sacramento. Professors nominated close to 300 undergraduates in 2016. Each of the students received a congratulatory email (for being nominated) and an invitation to a Celebration of Teaching event. Over 200 student nominees (90% of whom were students of color) attended the event and 98% said they will probably or definitely pursue teaching as a career afterwards. A Guide to planning this kind of campaign is attached. A documentary about CSUS's Celebration of Teaching event and the professor nomination strategy is availabe on the EduCorps home page.
