About the Excellence in Graduate Teaching Awards

The NCSU Graduate Student Association, founded in 1959, has worked with graduate faculty and administrators to recognize outstanding graduate student teachers since the 1970s.

Applications, consisting of letters of recommendation from faculty and students, teaching evaluations, and/or teaching portfolios, are submitted by Directors of Graduate Programs and evaluated by the GSA Teaching Excellence Committee. The majority of applicants, who represent the best of graduate student teaching in their department or program, receive a certificate of recognition. The best overall also receive a monetary award from the Graduate Student Association, funded through graduate student fees.

Winners and Nominees

Note: Awards are given in the spring semester, evaluating the work of graduate student teachers during the previous fall and spring semesters. For example, the awards ceremony of March 2016 recognized graduate students who taught during the calendar year 2015.
