Summer 2017 Call for Nominations

October 14, 2016


SUBJECT: Call for Nominations - Summer Graduate Teaching Scholars Program – Summer 2017

I am pleased to announce the call for nominations for the Summer Session 2017 Summer Graduate Teaching Scholars Program. This program provides opportunities for some of our top advanced graduate students to participate in a faculty-mentored professional development teaching program.

General Campus department chairs and program directors are invited to nominate advanced graduate students to teach in Summer Session 2017 as Associates-In in the program. Graduate students teaching will receive the regular Summer Session salary as Associates-In and a $1,200 payment for participation in the training program. Faculty mentors will receive a $500 payment to a research account.

This is an excellent professional development program for graduate students interested in teaching. Additionally, the program increases Summer Session course offerings and provides undergraduate students the opportunity to take courses taught by some of our best advanced graduate students who have an interest in teaching.

We encourage all departments to submit nominations. Priority will be given to graduate students who would be first-time Associates-In. Recipients will be announced by the end of fall quarter 2016.

Please visit the SGTS website for program details, eligibility and enrollment criteria, and online nomination submission instructions. Please note eligible recipients must have successfully completed the Center for Engaged Teaching’s “Teaching + Learning at the College Level” teaching workshop series or be currently enrolled in the workshop in Fall 2016. Nominations and supporting documentation are due on Wednesday, November 16, 2016. Please contact Gail McNabb ( or x20226) if you have questions about the program.
