Teaching Award

The University's teaching award has been granted since 2007. The prize is valued at CHF 10,000 and is funded by the Credit Suisse Foundation Jubilee, which is why the official name of the prize is "Credit Suisse Award for Best Teaching." It, too, is presented at the annual Dies academicus celebration.
