Department and school representatives

Departmental and school representatives serve as links between the Academy and their academic departments and professional schools. They meet periodically with their department and school leadership to learn how the Academy can best serve the needs of all educators. They also meet with other Academy members in their departments and schools to discover and implement ways to honor and support teachers.

Membership applicants are encouraged to contact one of these individuals for more information about the Academy. In addition, we strongly recommend working with a trained Academy application coarch for one-on-one guidance in prepraring the Educator Portfolio. For a referral to an Academy application coach, email

All academy members can be searched by department and school in our Membership Directory.
