About The Academy
The Academy of Educators (AOE), at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill School of Medicine, was founded in October 2006 as a part of the School’s strategic plan to enhance research and scholarship towards excellence in teaching. Currently, the Academy has four committees, Scholarship, Programming, Awards, and Membership. The AOE is overseen by a President, with support from a Leadership Council, and a Coordinator from the Office of Faculty Affairs & Leadership Development.
The Mission of the Academy is
- to promote and support excellence in teaching and the work and career paths of excellent teachers;
- to promote and fund curricular innovation, evidence-based curricular change and a scholarly approach to the education mission; and
- to provide a forum for education leadership and advice for the Dean, Vice Dean of Education, and Vice Dean of Faculty Affairs and Leadership Development (FALD).
Recently, there have been a number of voted on and approved changes to our by-laws, which can be found below.
