The UNL Teaching Council is a Chancellor's Committee established in 1969. The Council shall have major responsibility for the encouragement and support of efforts to improve instruction and learning at all levels at UNL. Funds appropriated specifically for improvement of instruction and learning and made available to the Council by the Chancellor shall be expended with the advice of the Teaching Council (Bylaws of the University of Nebraska–Lincoln, 1976).

To fulfill its mission, the Teaching Council will assist in the selection of recipients of campus teaching awards including the Sorensen, OTICA, UDTA, and the ADT; it will support and promote initiatives to enhance the quality of instruction at UNL, and it will interface and collaborate with other campus bodies, to nurture teaching excellence across the campus.
