We are proud to announce that Matthew Hitchcock (PhD ’21) has won the Outstanding Graduate Student Award for Teaching from the Office of the Provost at Northeastern University. Winners of this award are chosen for their demonstration of “an exceptional ability to communicate ideas and concepts in the classroom and a talent for inspiring students.” Matthew’s students consistently report feeling “engaged, challenged, and accomplished in critical thinking and writing skills” in Matthew’s classroom, where he creates space for students to take risks and make sophisticated connections with their learning. Matthew currently serves as the Assistant Director of the Writing Program and is working on his dissertation, tentatively titled, “Commemorative Objects: Rhetorical Genre Studies, Annotation, and the Family Photograph” (directed by Ellen Cushman).

Congratulations, Matthew!
