On October 23, 2019 Dr. Ellen Key was inducted into the College of Arts & Sciences Academy of Outstanding Teachers.

Each year, the committee selects up to four faculty members from across the College for appointment to the Academy of Outstanding Teachers as well as one Academy member for recognition as The College of Arts and Sciences Outstanding Teacher of the Year.
Normally those appointed to the Academy of Outstanding Teachers are currently active faculty members in CAS, however under extraordinary circumstances, retired or emeriti faculty may be appointed.
Qualifications for consideration are:
Ability to impart knowledge, inquisitiveness, and the desire for continued learning
Competence and command of the subject matter
