Owen King wins University's Graduate Associate Teaching Award

April 17, 2014

On Tuesday, April 15, Graduate School Dean Patrick Osmer presented ten Graduate Associates from across the University with an annual award recognizing excellence in teaching. Owen King--an advanced Philosophy graduate student who teaches a variety of courses including one of his own design, Introduction to Computing Ethics--was recognized with one of the very competitive awards. The Dean reported that the winners were selected by an interdisciplinary committee of faculty and former winners from among 131 nominees and more than 3000 total Graduate Associate teachers.
