On May 2, CAS named the 2015/16 Outstanding Teaching Fellows, honoring PhD students in each discipline for their tireless work to help undergraduate students achieve their full academic potential.

“Very often [these students] are the instructors who get to know our undergraduates best in the earliest stages of their college careers,” says Dean Ann Cudd. “Each year we honor the best of our teaching fellows—those who stand out already in making a major difference in the teaching mission of BU.”

Congratulations to the following fellows for this honor. You can read full descriptions of each fellow’s work here.
