Graduate Student Excellence-in-Teaching Awards

Alan Flurry

The Excellence-in-Teaching Award was established by the Graduate School to recognize those students who have demonstrated superior teaching skills and have contributed to teaching beyond their own classroom responsibilities, making a significant contribution to the instructional mission of the university.

Three of the five 2022 Graduate Student Excellence-in-Teaching awards went to Franklin College students:

Elise Robinson is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of Theatre and Film Studies and writing her dissertation on the British Women’s Suffrage movement as performance.

Michael Starling is a Ph.D. candidate and has served as an instructor of record in the Department of Philosophy since fall 2018, teaching courses in informal logic, history of philosophy and ancient Greek philosophy.

Gabrielle Stecher is a Ph.D. candidate in the Department of English. Since 2018, she has served as an instructor of record for English and First-Year Writing.
