Spring has become one of my favorite seasons--it's a time of celebration for our faculty and staff who have worked hard to improve the lives of UGA's students. Spring is when we recognize the innovative teaching and guidance of our faculty, teaching assistants, and advisors.
Each year the University of Georgia recognizes graduate students who have demonstrated superior teaching skills and contributed to teaching beyond their own classroom responsibilities through the Excellence in Teaching Awards administered by the Graduate School and the Outstanding Teaching Awards administered by the Office of the Vice President for Instruction.
