Summer 2018 Call for Nominations

October 10, 2017


SUBJECT: Call for Nominations - Summer Graduate Teaching Scholars Program – Summer 2018

I am pleased to announce the call for nominations for the Summer Session 2018 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 2018 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 a nomination. To be eligible, graduate students need to be Associates-In for the first time. Recipients will be announced by the end of fall quarter 2017.

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 (CET) teaching workshop series "Introduction to College Teaching” (formerly “Teaching + Learning at the College Level”) or be currently enrolled in the workshop in Fall 2017.

Nominations and supporting documentation are due on Thursday, November 16, 2017. Please contact Marina Hayden ( if you have questions about the program.
