Caltech GSC Teaching & Mentoring Award 2005–2006
June 7, 2006

The Graduate Student Council (GSC) recognizes professors for their excellence in teaching and mentoring. A large part of graduate students’ education occurs outside the classroom, so in addition to classroom teaching, GSC honors outstanding mentors: those members of the Caltech community who show us the ropes, who support us through our exams and thesis defense, and lead us as we begin our careers. The GSC also shows appreciation to teaching assistants who have put in extra effort to help students through a class.
