Three doctoral candidates receive outstanding teaching awards

The Department of Computer Science and Engineering is pleased to announce that three doctoral candidates have received the 2020 Outstanding Graduate Student Teaching Award.

Presented annually by Notre Dame Learning, the Graduate School, and the Kaneb Center for Teaching and Learning, the award recognizes exceptional teaching in the classroom or in a teaching laboratory.

“Graduates students play a very important role within our department and in helping us fulfill the Notre Dame mission. They work tirelessly alongside faculty on a variety of research projects. Equally important, they contribute to the education of undergraduates in the department by example — as dedicated researchers and as engaging teaching assistants in classrooms and labs.”

— Jane Cleland-Huang, professor and director of graduate studies
