Teaching Awards

The Teaching Awards Committee works on running nomination periods throughout the year so that students can nominate their favourite professors and TAs for an award. This gives students the opportunity to recognize excellent educators and appreciate their contribution to the McMaster community.

The committee consists of both elected SRA members and volunteers. If you're interested in joining the committee, email us at tac@msu.mcmaster.ca!
