The LGCU decided last year to present an annual award to a faculty member who showed excellence and dedication in the mentoring of teaching assistants. Linguistics faculty of any rank, from sessionals to emeriti, are eligible.
This year, Michelle Troberg (UTM) received the award. Elaine Gold and Eri Takahashi received honourable mentions.
The award includes a certificate as well as either a pub night with the grad students sponsored by the LGCU or a gift certificate.
