PAM Outstanding Teaching Assistant Awards

Student headshots

Each semester, the Field of Policy Analysis & Management recognizes graduate students with Outstanding Teaching Assistant Awards. These awards are intended to recognize and incentivize outstanding work by teaching assistants, and to signal to potential employers that the recipients are exceptional teachers.  

Please join us in congratulating the winners of the PAM Outstanding Teaching Assistant Award for the Fall 2019 semester!

Outstanding TA awards are based on student course evaluations (both the numeric scoring and open-ended responses) and the feedback of professors teaching the courses.  Factors related to the difficulty of TAing the course (e.g. enrollment, workload, whether it's a required course) are also taken into account.
