For the second time this year, the Undergraduate Council has extended the nomination deadline for its outstanding teacher award, council members said yesterday.
Judges will accept nominations until tomorrow at 5 p.m. for the Levenson prize, an annual award which honors teachers for their dedication to undergraduates, said Thomas C. Cronin '87, chairman of the council's subcommittee on the Levenson award.
As of Wednesday, the council reportedly had received only five or six nominations.
The deadline was extended in the hope of matching past years' level of student input, said Cronin, adding that the council has in the past received at least 60 submissions from undergraduates.
Judges will select one senior faculty member, one junior faculty member, and one teaching fellow, who will receive the awards at a May 1 banquet, said Arti K. Srivastava '87, a member of the council's Academics Committee.
The nomination forms, which require an essay explaining why the nominee deserves the award, are available in all of the house dining halls and can be turned in at the council office in the basement of Canaday Hall C-Entry, Cronin said.
Judges will look at such things as teachers' involvement in the Core and in sections and their willingness to spend time with students, Cronin said.
The award was established as a memorial to the late Harvard professor Joseph R. Levenson.
