Recognizing Teaching Excellence
The John R. Frazier Award was established in 1968 by RISD alumni, friends, and family of the late John R. Frazier, who served as President of RISD from 1955-1962 and a professor of painting for many years, to honor faculty for excellence in teaching. In 2004, a second award was established to honor part-time faculty. The awards are presented annually at Commencement.
