STUDENTS – write a letter!
If you are a student, you can submit a letter of support for your TA or instructor by clicking on the button below. Letters should describe and provide evidence for teaching excellence, addressing (without being restricted to) the criteria listed on the Awards and Criteria page. Letters will be kept for four years. Once we have a minimum of five letters collected over a four year period, this triggers formation of a nomination package.
You may not write a letter for someone who is currently teaching you or supervising you. (But you could do so in a subsequent year!)
You are encouraged to motivate other students to write letters so that the nomination may proceed.

To submit a complete nomination package you must include:

The letters should have been prepared within the four years preceding the nomination.
