Program Features

  • Qualified juniors and seniors who have been identified through faculty nominations serve as teaching associates in selected undergraduate courses under the tutelage of interested instructors.
  • Participating faculty and students meet several times during the semester as part of an informal seminar on college teaching to be conducted by the Center for Professional Development.
  • While no stipend is provided to participating students, the University will provide appropriate recognition to those involved. Some (non- M & E)resources may be available to fund travel to relevant conferences or other professional development opportunities. Student participation will be recorded on the official Student Development Transcript if requested.
  • The intention is not for students to be involved in grading papers or in clerical work, but rather to assist in planning and at times in helping to teach classes under faculty supervision.
  • The student enrolls in a 1-2 credit course in the appropriate department under the appropriate independent study course number. NOTE: Students must obtain and complete an Arranged Course Form to be submitted to the Records Office. This course may be repeated and will be graded S or U.
