Outstanding graduate students at the University of Wisconsin–Madison have been selected as recipients of the 2020 Campus-Wide Teaching Assistant Awards for excellence in teaching and instructional continuity during the COVID-19 pandemic.

UW–Madison employs over 2,100 teaching assistants (TAs) across a wide range of disciplines. Their contributions to the classroom, lab, and field are essential to the university’s educational mission. To recognize the excellence of TAs across campus, the Graduate School supports the College of Letters & Science (L&S) in administering these awards.

This year, the TA Awards included a new award category recognizing graduate students in L&S who provided exceptional continuity of instruction support to their department or delivered exceptional student experience in a remote instructional setting during the COVID-19 pandemic.

A second new award, the Dorothy Powelson Teaching Assistant Award, recognizes outstanding performance by a TA in the natural sciences.
