Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year Award

Graduate Teaching Assistants (GTAs) contribute significantly to UVM's teaching mission, carrying important and often complex teaching responsibilities. They merit recognition for their dedication and for the important contributions they make to the teaching of undergraduate students at UVM. The Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year Award recognizes annually the accomplishments of GTAs who have demonstrated unusual excellence and creativity in their teaching and commitment to student learning. Beginning in 2013, two awards are given each year, one for GTAs who have served as the primary instructor in a lecture based course, one for teaching assistants who have served as laboratory instructors. While only two GTAs are chosen to receive the Graduate Teaching Assistant of the Year Award, the department and program nominees for the award are also recognized and honored.

Congratulations to our 2014 Award recipients:








Vincent Mugisha
