The Education Committee solicits applications annually for the Joseph R. Levenson Memorial Teaching Prize and the John R. Marquand Award for Exceptional Advising and Counseling of Harvard Students.
The Joseph R. Levenson Memorial Teaching Prizes celebrate exceptional teaching of undergraduates at Harvard. Each year, the Undergraduate Council honors one senior faculty member, one junior faculty member and one teaching fellow.
The John R. Marquand Award for Exceptional Advising and Counseling of Harvard Students is named after legendary Senior Tutor of Dudley House John R. Marquand, to, in the words of the award’s donors, remember his “devoted service to the students of Harvard College, to perpetuate his good work and to enhance Harvard’s ability to recognize those who contribute to the undergraduate experience.” The prize shall be “awarded to a staff or faculty member who contributes to the quality of undergraduate life and education…[with a] focus on each candidate’s skill and generosity in advising, counseling, and helping students.”
The Thomas Dingman Award for First-Year Advising recognizes one exceptional and supportive first-year advisor.
