Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistants (GA) are assigned tasks that enhance their professional development or aid faculty members in their duties. Areas of development will vary depending on the assistant's area of study but may include: working in a clinical setting, database management, and scholarly or research activities. Assistants may also work with faculty to tutor, assist in the classroom, or grade. GAs are not considered clerical help.
