The Core Curriculum

Preceptor Teaching Awards

The Core Curriculum is committed to excellent teaching, based on the recognition that the power of the Core to transform our students into critical and empowered citizens depends fundamentally on their personal experience in the classroom. Our graduate student Preceptors are among the most dedicated and gifted teachers in the Core. We are recognizing these outstanding young teachers,as a way of encouraging them in their commitment to teaching, and of acknowledging the centrality of their contribution to the Core.

We have established an award for excellence in teaching that honors, each year, graduate student instructors in Core courses including Contemporary Civilization, Literature Humanities, Art Humanities, and Music Humanities. The award is presented at the end-of-year faculty reception.
