Nominations Sought for Teaching Assistant, Peer Learning Assistant of the Year

All graduate TAs appointed for at least one semester in the last 12 months are eligible for the TA of the Year Award. All undergraduates employed or appointed to provide academic assistance to peers within the last year are also eligible.

Teaching Assistant of the Year and Peer Learning Assistant of the Year awards serve as a means of recognizing the contributions of excellent graduate TAs to high-quality undergraduate education at WPI, along with the contributions of undergraduate PLAs and similar undergraduate instructional assistants and tutors. Please consider nominating candidates for these awards.

All graduate TAs appointed for at least one semester in the last 12 months are eligible for the TA of the Year Award.

All undergraduates employed or appointed to provide academic assistance to peers within the last year are eligible—including PLAs, senior tutors, senior assistants, writing tutors, MASH tutors, peer academic coaches, and similar positions. WPI community members who wish to recognize undergraduate students in these teaching positions are asked to nominate them for the PLA award rather than the Student Employee of the Year awards.

An effective nomination typically consists of letters from faculty or supervisors and from students. Letters should be sent, either individually or as a package, to Deb Graves (djgraves@wpi.edu), Provost’s Office, Boynton Hall, by Friday, Jan. 22. Paper or electronic documents may be submitted.
