Congratulations to Our 2020 Teaching Assistant Award Winners! 

 

On Tuesday, May 12th, 2020 the Biology Instructional Office held its annual Teaching Assistant (TA) Award ceremony. For the first time, this ceremony was hosted on Zoom while the university operates in remote status. Out of over 200 TA positions appointed during the past year, we had 28 TAs and 18 UGTAs nominated for this honor, but could choose only 10 to win the award. The list below includes all of the nominees. Winners are indicated by *.

We would like to thank these TAs & UGTAs, both the award winners and those nominated, for being outstanding teaching assistants. TAs are an integral part of the teaching experience and you have gone above and beyond what has been asked of you. Thank you!
