The nomination of each graduate student itself is an honor and indicates that their teaching has had a positive impact on students and/or colleagues. This award honors University of Pittsburgh Vice-Provost for Graduate Studies and Professor of Physics Elizabeth Baranger. The eight students from the Chemistry Department who have been nominated are: Adam Fleisher, Amy Grote, Filip Petronijevic, Joel Destino, Jessica Sarver, Kara George, Kathryn Tarney and Tim Cunningham.
