|Outstanding Graduate Teaching Assistant Awards|
Beginning in 1996, Old Dominion University has recognized graduate teaching assistants for exceptional instructional quality. Each year, the University selects two outstanding graduate teaching assistants-one for laboratory instruction and one for classroom instruction. The outstanding graduate teaching assistants are selected in March, and, in addition to the $1,000 award, they are recognized at the spring faculty recognition dinner in April. Graduate teaching assistants who worked during the previous spring and summer semesters can also be nominated for recognition, in addition to fall semester graduate teaching assistants. All of the college nominees receive recognition certificates. Nominations are due in the Office of the associate dean during the first week of February. Please note the specific due date each year.
