The Faculty of Science recognizes academic excellence in both teaching and learning. Annually, our best students receive a place on the Dean's List, and the Faculty honours our best educators with awards. For a list of current and past recipients, please visit the Faculty of Science Excellence and Awards page.
Every year, the University of Calgary along with the Graduate Students' Association and the Students' Union sponsor teaching excellence awards. Faculty, Instructors, and Teaching Assistants are nominated by students in order to be eligible for these awards.
The Department of Mathematics and Statistics takes great pride in the caliber of our teachers and students. Frequently, the University of Calgary's wider community shares in that pride sufficiently to bestow upon our faculty and students awards for excellence. The Department of Mathematics and Statistics wishes to highlight some of the recent award recipients in the Department.

Departmental Graduate Assistant Teaching Excellence Awards
The Graduate Assistant Teaching Excellence Awards recognize excellence in teaching among the GAT (Graduate Assistantship in Teaching) holders in the Department. Each fall and winter term, these awards are given to the top 5-6 Graduate Teaching Assistants in the Department, based on comments from the students they teach, feedback from the instructors for whom they TA, and other supporting evidence of excellence in teaching. Evaluations take into account a TA’s work ethic, knowledge on the subject, communication/presentation skills and attitude toward students. Recipients receive a modest token of financial appreciation from the Department.
