Graduate Student Events

Teaching and Research Assistant Orientation Series

These 2.5 hour sessions will cover general issues relevant to all TAs and RAs across campus. All sessions will cover faculty mentorship, campus regulations and resources for graduate students, and graduate financial aid requirements. The sessions will also focus on campus-wide issues and resources related to teaching (such as Blackboard and academic integrity) or research (such as library support and computer software). We will also have a case study component to foster discussion and bring real-life experience to the sessions.  

These sessions are intended for first-time assistants, although experienced assistants are welcome to attend. Please note that research and teaching assistant orientations are offered as separate sessions. Assistants need only attend one orientation. 

For those who cannot attend in person we will have GotoMeeting electronic "virtual" sessions. These sessions are limited to 16 people each, so sign up soon! You will receive instructions on how to log in/phone into the event once you sign up. You'll need a phone or webcam/headset and speakers to participate in the GotoMeeting session.

Refreshments will be served at the in-person sessions. Use the form at the bottom of this page to sign up.
