Excellence in Teaching
The individual should combine personal qualities of dedication and commitment to teaching, with innovation, creativity, preparedness and efficiency in the classroom. The award is designed to reward students for their activities as teaching assistants in undergraduate courses at Dartmouth College or on Dartmouth College Foreign Study Programs. Instruction activities may take place in laboratories, discussion groups, or other similar forums.
The recipient will be selected by the School of Graduate and Advanced Studies in conjunction with faculty reviewers. Each program or department can nominate one student each year. The nomination should include a letter of support explaining the student's contributions and experience. Students may be nominated for activities as teaching assistants in more than one course and may be nominated more than one time.
All nominations from the graduate programs must be submitted to the School of Graduate and Advanced Studies office (Kerry Landers) no later than May 7.
The winner of the award will be announced at the Graduate Studies Graduation Reception in June and winners will receive a cash prize of $1000.
We ask that each department send in only one nomination. Your nomination should include:
- A letter of recommendation
- A copy of the student's curriculum vita or resume
- A copy of the students teaching statement
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Kerry Landers in the School of Graduate and Advanced Studies, 37 Dewey Field Road, Suite 6062, Room 437.
