Horticulture graduate student wins national student teaching award
Matthew Wilson, a doctoral candidate in the horticulture, forestry and recreation resources department, recently received a North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture Graduate Student Teaching Award.
The award is given to graduate students who excel as teachers in agriculture disciplines and are active in classroom instruction. Applicants are reviewed by a committee of North American Colleges and Teachers of Agriculture members and are evaluated based on the graduate student's teaching philosophy, their involvement in teaching outside the classroom, self-evaluation, support letters from supervising faculty and administrators and student recommendations.
