Graduate Students

Teaching Recognition

The University of Rochester has developed two teaching programs: Foundations in Teaching and Advanced Teaching. Graduate students who complete the requirements for either (or both) will receive a notation on their transcript recognizing completion of the particular teaching program(s).

All participants (including graduate students and post-docs) will receive a certificate of completion upon meeting the requirements for the different programs. The individual schools are responsible for conferring this recognition for their own students.

Foundations in Teaching

For the Foundations in Teaching Program, students must meet the following criteria:

Students who want to receive recognition at the Foundations in Teaching level must submit a proposal that describes how they plan to meet (or have already met) the requirements listed above to the appropriate school’s Teaching and Recognition Program Committee (contacts listed below).

This proposal will be reviewed by the school’s Teaching Program Committee and approved or sent back for revisions if the proposal is not meet with approval.

Advanced Teaching

For the Advanced Teaching Program, students must meet the following criteria:

Students who want to receive recognition at the advanced teaching level must submit a proposal that describes how they plan to meet (or have already met) the requirements listed above to the appropriate school’s Teaching Program Committee (contacts listed below).
