Teaching Assistant Award

The Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health Teaching Assistant Awards represent a unique opportunity for students to recognize teaching assistants who have demonstrated excellence in partnering with course instructors to deliver high-quality educational experiences.


Teaching assistants graduating in November 2021, March 2022, or May 2022 are eligible.


The nominee must have:

  • Received a high overall rating and positive student comments
  • Special consideration is given to TAs who teach their own individual lab sections


Teaching Assistant Awards recognize the important contributions of teaching assistants to education at Harvard Chan and are based on student course evaluations.

Students: To include your course evaluation in this process, it must be submitted by noon on May 13, 2022. (Please note that students may complete their course evaluation after May 13, 2022, but feedback after that date cannot be considered as part of the awarding process.)


A committee with representatives from the Office for Education, Committee on Educational Policy, and Committee on Admissions and Degrees selects the TA Award winners, based on the above criteria.

The recipient of the Teaching Assistant Award will be announced during our graduation award ceremony.
