Former Outstanding Graduate Student Instructors

The Physics Department is fortunate to have an academic staff that is enthusiastic, dedicated and talented. It is appropriate at this time of the academic year to express our appreciation.

During the 2013-2014 academic year 131 Graduate Student Instructors (GSIs) taught over 5000 students in discussion and laboratory sections. Based upon student evaluations and nominations from students and faculty, eleven GSIs have been identified for recognition with the Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor (OGSI) Award.

The GSI Teaching and Resource Center hosted a reception to honor OGSI winners from all departments on May 6, 2014. The award certificates were presented to the Physics OGSIs as part of the Physics, Astronomy, and Physical Sciences Graduation Ceremony held on May 19, 2014 at Zellerbach Auditorium.
