Summerfield awarded graduate associate teaching award by OSU graduate school

April 22, 2024

Erica Summerfield has been awarded a Graduate Associate Teaching Award (GATA) by the Ohio State Graduate School. Summerfield is a PhD candidate studying agricultural communication, education, and leadership.

GATA is the premier award for celebrating excellence in teaching at the graduate level. Recipients of the GATA are nominated by faculty, staff and students through an anonymous nomination process. Each nominee is asked to provide an application packet which is reviewed holistically by the GATA selection committee to evaluate the nominee’s ability to facilitate student learning and to reflect, evaluate, and improve their own teaching. 

Summerfield will receive a monetary award for her accomplishments and will be honored at the annual Graduate School Awards Ceremony this spring.
