WSU Applebaum Prism Prize for Innovation in Teaching Award

Call for nominations

Upon retiring from the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences, Assistant Dean of Student and Alumni Affairs Wyn Schumann generously created the Prism Prize for Innovation in Teaching to recognize faculty members who exemplify the principles of service learning and its impact. 

Through Schumann’s support, the college has been able to recognize the following current and former faculty members for their excellence in service learning: Geri Smith, Susan Talley, Stephanie Gilkey, Martha Schiller and Regina Parnell.

Nominations will be accepted through Oct. 10 for the 2019 Prism Prize. One winner will be chosen by the award committee.


Full- and part-time faculty members of the Eugene Applebaum College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences who actively engage students in the service learning principles of preparation, community service, reflection and evaluation through a course or learning experience are eligible for the Prism Prize.

The winner will receive $1,500 to purchase education-related materials/equipment, provide speakers for academic preparation or professional development related to service learning principles, or travel to present the innovative work responsible for their nomination and subsequent award. 

The nomination form may be completed by a student, faculty member, staff member or alumnus.
