The humanities graduate students include Jacqueline Campbell (English), Katherine Dennis, (Classics), Soojung Han, (East Asian Studies), Jessica LeGare (East Asian Studies), Shelby Sinclair (History), Grega Ulen (Comparative Literature), and Alejandro Virue (Spanish and Portuguese).
Winners were selected by a committee chaired by Cole Crittenden, deputy dean and acting dean of the Graduate School, and composed of the academic affairs deans and staff from the McGraw Center for Teaching and Learning. The nominations were made by academic departments and programs. Each winner receives $1,000.
The selection committee also recognized Jacqueline Campbell, a fifth-year Ph.D. student in English, as a graduate student assistant in instruction (AI) in the humanities, for her work teaching ENG 215 “Introduction to Science Fiction.”
