Teaching Assistant Awards
The Department of Entomology awards three different teaching awards to its graduate students:
- Allen L. Steinhauer Award for Excellence in Teaching. The most distinguished and prestigious honor presented to a Teaching Assistant by the Department of Entomology.
- Teaching Achievement Award (formerly the Honorable Mention category). An honor awarded to truly outstanding Teaching Assistants. This is a prominent and selective recognition, second only to the Steinhauer Award.
- Special Distinction in Teaching Award. Awarded by the Awards Committee for a particular or special effort worthy of honor, such as being an exemplary Prep Teaching Assistant, including assistance with course and/or lab development.
The 2018 - 2019 recipients were recognized for their achievements in teaching at the 2018 Entomology Department Retreat at SESYNC in September 2018.
