Sourav Chatterjee receives Presidential Award for Outstanding Teaching for 2024

Congratulations to Sourav Chatterjee, who is one of three graduate student instructors who were named recipients of the Presidential Award for Outstanding Teaching for 2024.

This is a very competitive and distinguished award awarded to only 3 students in the entire university per year.
The Presidential Awards for Outstanding Teaching were established in 1996 to honor excellence in teaching at the University. 5 awards are conferred to faculty and 3 awards are conferred to graduate student instructors each year. The Columbia community is invited to submit nominations, and these are reviewed by selection committees comprised of both faculty and students, including prior winners. From this pool of hundreds of nominations, a select group of finalists are chosen. Their departments are asked to prepare dossiers that illustrate their commitment to promoting intellectual development, innovation in pedagogy and design, commitment to inclusivity and diversity in the classroom, and a dedication and enthusiasm for teaching.
