Graduate Assistants

Graduate assistants, or GAs, are both graduate students and research or teaching assistants who contribute to the academic mission of the university. Graduate students awarded these competitive positions receive a stipend and benefits package for their work in the classrooms, offices, and laboratories of the university. Most GA opportunities fall into two categories. Research GAs conduct cutting-edge research alongside faculty members. Teaching GAs instruct undergraduate-level courses. In addition, GAs in the College of Education may engage in professional work relevant to their field of study.
