Teacher of Courage and Conscience Award was created to recognize teachers who improve access to high-quality education for those students who are currently least well-served; advocate for the education profession; encourage student curiosity and love of learning, use innovative teaching strategies, and engage students in meaningful problem-solving, knowledge-production, or artistic work; and embody and put into practice the values of Villanova University: Veritas, Unitas, Caritas. Recipients of the award are well-respected by their colleagues, beloved by their students, and recognized as teacher activists or agents of change in their local communities.
