Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award

Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award

Deadline to submit nominations will be announced here.
The nomination packets will be posted when available, typically in winter quarter.

The Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award (OGTA) recognizes the contributions of graduate students to teaching and learning at UC Davis. This is a tremendously important award as it honors outstanding graduate students, reminds the campus that teaching is a central part of the university’s mission, and can inspire students and professors to give increased attention to the educational process.

Send in your nominations - Anyone may nominate!

Do you know a graduate student who deserves to be recognized for exemplary teaching? Any member of the campus community having direct experience with the student's teaching may nominate. Download the nomination packet and submit your favorite graduate teacher for consideration. Undergraduate students are especially encouraged to submit.

A committee that includes faculty and graduate students will be appointed by the Graduate Council to review all nominations and select award recipients. In spring quarter, the nominees will be notified whether they have been selected to receive an award. A certificate and a small monetary award will be conferred to award winners at the Spring Awards Ceremony recognizing their achievement and contribution.

The award is limited to currently enrolled graduate students who have been employed on this campus as paid teachers or teaching assistants during an eligible quarter. The nominator(s) and candidate must work with the candidate's home department or graduate group personnel to provide all of the required information. Previous recipients of this award are not eligible for nomination.
