Graduate Student Teaching Awards
The English Department has established two annual awards that recognize the superior teaching of one of our Master’s candidates and one of our PhD candidates: the Award for Excellence in Teaching by a Master’s Degree Candidate in English, and the Award for Excellence in Teaching by a Doctoral Candidate in English. The recipients are chosen by the Graduate Committee in consultation with the Director of Undergraduate Composition and, in the case of PhD students, faculty mentors for that year. Self-nominations and nominations by faculty and students are encouraged. The purpose of these awards is to acknowledge the often extraordinary work in the classroom carried out by graduate students on behalf of the department and the university.
