The UMass Lowell Award for Graduate Teaching is designed to honor contributions faculty make to graduate-level instruction. Our university recognizes the distinctive qualities that guide excellence when working with master's and doctoral students. Graduate education involves teaching the next generation of researchers, practitioners, and professionals to reach advanced levels of skill, knowledge, understanding, appreciation, and expression.
