Jeanne Kusina and Arthur Ward receive 2007 Graduate Teaching Awards
The Department and our undergraduate students are fortunate that we have so many graduate assistants who perform in an outstanding manner in the classes they teach. To recognize this excellence, my wife Linda and I have established two teaching awards for graduate assistants. One goes to a graduate assistant in the first two years of graduate work at BGSU who demonstrates excellence while assisting a faculty member in the teaching of a philosophy course. The other goes to a graduate assistant in the latter (three or more) years of graduate work at BGSU who demonstrates excellence in independent teaching in philosophy. The recipients of these awards have been nominated by the Director of Graduate Student Instruction, and endorsed by the Director of Graduate Student Instruction, based upon a review of the student evaluation scores and faculty visitation reports for all teaching assistants. I am pleased to announce that the recipient of the 2006-07 Independent Teaching Excellence Award is Jean Kusina and the recipient of the 2006-07 Teaching Assistance Excellence Award is Arthur Ward. Please join me in congratulating Jean and Arthur, as well as all the graduate assistants who did a first-rate job in the classroom during the last academic year.
