Special award for commitment to teaching

The Special Award of the Student Body for Special Commitment to Teaching is intended to recognize members of the university who have made a special commitment to teaching and who may not be the focus of the traditional teaching award. It is explicitly not just a prize for a good teaching concept, but a special prize for creating good general conditions that enable students to have a good and learning-friendly environment. The special prize is awarded for special services to teaching, its general conditions and the interests of the student body at the university, as well as for special commitment to students.

The special prize is supported by the Sparkasse Göttingen and is endowed with 1000€..
