More information on professional development funding can be found here.

COLA Teaching Assistant Agreement

CREEES requires all TAs and faculty supervisors to turn in the TA Agreement created by the COLA Dean's office by the 4th class day. This document, a contract of sorts, is to be reviewed, completed and signed by student employees and faculty prior to the start of each semester. Once signed, please make a copy for each party and place the original in the Graduate Coordinator inbox in the main office to be kept on file.

TA Agreement  Background:
The Teaching Assistant Job Duties document originated from conversations that took place within the College of Liberal Arts TA Taskforce during the 2014-2015 academic year. It is meant to improve communication between TAs and instructors and enhance the success of our TAs and students by generating conversation and clarifying expectations. Graduate students, graduate coordinators, and graduate advisors in the College had input into the content. As expectations and practices may vary across units, please feel free to modify and use as necessary.
