Each spring, there will be a call for self-nominations for the McDaniel and Cox Awards. All M.A.-level and Ph.D.-level teaching or writing assistants are eligible to apply.
The John N. McDaniel Excellence in Teaching
Two $500-dollar McDaniel awards are given annually to outstanding classroom teaching assistants, based on teaching observations, student evaluations, a self-nomination letter, and other supporting evidence. The McDaniel Awards are sponsored by Thomson Publishing.
The Bené Cox Excellence in Tutoring Award
One $150-dollar Cox award is given annually to an undergraduate or graduate student tutor (writing assistant) in the University Writing Center, based on a self-nomination letter and tutoring portfolio. The Cox Award is sponsored by Bedford/St. Martin’s.
Entries are evaluated by the General Education Awards Committee and University Writers Center, respectively.
