Course Assistant/Grader Requests to Support Fall 2022 Teaching

Below are the School of Arts and Sciences Fall 2022 procedures for allocating Course Assistants and Graders. This process aims to increase equity and transparency and make decisions about teaching support based on the learning needs of our undergraduates.

The following criteria will continue to be used for Fall 2022 classes:

Job Descriptions

The Dean’s Office will begin responding to requests in July so chairs and administrators can begin to hire these positions from your own graduate student pool or a list of interested students looking for teaching work.  Please check the CA/Grader Candidate spreadsheet regularly if you are seeking to hire a graduate student outside your department, as graduate students will be adding their names to this sheet throughout the intersession. We will include information about the hiring process with our response to requests for CAs and Graders. 

If your department or program believes it still needs additional teaching support beyond what is provided by the School of Arts and Sciences, up to three additional CA/Grader positions can be paid for by your GTR (up to 25%) or, if you do not have GTR, your OPEX funds.

Key Deadlines
If you have any questions, please email Olga Papaemmanouil and Diana Filar.
