The CGSC Educator of the Year Program recognizes teaching excellence among the faculty members of the U.S. Army Command and General Staff College. Each school or teaching department nominates its outstanding uniformed and civilian instructor as the CGSC Educators of the Year, taking into account classroom observations and student feedback.

The first group recognized in the ceremony were Army University’s faculty authors. The Golden Pen Ceremony recognizes staff and faculty for research and scholarship.
