The Outstanding Graduate Student Instructor Awards recognize the efforts and accomplishments of GSIs who demonstrate extraordinary dedication and excellence as teachers.

"I am thrilled and honored to receive this award. Teaching means so much to me, and I am extremely grateful to the Anthropology Department for giving me the opportunity to be an instructor. I am also grateful to the department for nominating me for this award. Most importantly, I especially want to thank Dr. Thomas Chivens for his invaluable mentoring over the years, as I have developed my teaching style." - Benjamin Hollenbach
