Near the end of the academic year, three outstanding teaching assistants are selected and are given a monetary award in honor of Emery E. Slossen. Awardees are restricted to those GTAs who have held at least quarter time appointments during both semesters of the current academic year. The Director of Laboratories is the lead decision-maker when selecting honorees and conducts thorough evaluations of all eligible candidates throughout the academic year. Evaluations shall be on the basis of:

  • preparation for teaching assignments
  • quality of grading and recording
  • effective presentation of the material
  • assisting students patiently and pleasantly

Strong consideration shall be given to performance beyond the call of duty.
