Recognizing Teaching Excellence

The John R. Frazier Award for Excellence in Teaching was established in 1968 by RISD alumni, friends, and family of the late John R. Frazier; a RISD Professor of Painting who also served as President of RISD from 1955-1962. The award is presented each year at Commencement to one full-time and one part-time faculty member who embodies the highest ideals to which our faculty aspire, and who has had an enduring influence on student learning. All students, faculty, staff, alumni, and trustees are invited to take time to carefully consider a nomination for the Frazier Award for Excellence in Teaching.
