2019/20 Killam Award winners for excellence in teaching

April 30, 2020

As one of six Killam institutions, UBC offers yearly awards from the Killam Endowment Fund to faculty and teaching assistants who demonstrate excellence in teaching. 

The Killam Teaching Prize is awarded annually to faculty members who are nominated by students, colleagues and alumni in recognition of excellence in teaching, while the Killam Graduate Teaching Assistant Award recognizes the valuable role that Teaching Assistants play in our programs.

A special congratulations to the 2019/20 recipients of both these awards for their outstanding teaching, research and service to the community.
