Outstanding Graduate Teaching Assistant Award

The Outstanding Graduate Teaching Assistant Award acknowledges and recognizes outstanding graduate teaching assistants for their contributions to the teaching mission of Northern Illinois University (NIU). Two to four recipients are selected annually, at least one of which is a Master's student. Each department may only nominate one student at the doctoral and master's levels, so being nominated to represent a department is a recognition in its own right.

Call for Nominations

The call for nominations is closed for 2022. Nominations for the 2023 awards will open in Fall, 2022.
