Receive financial assistance and professional growth opportunities through Graduate Assistant Teaching (GAT), Graduate Assistant Research (GAR) and Graduate Assistant Non-teaching (GANT) assistantships.
Graduate Assistant Teaching (GAT) assistantships must be under the direct supervision of a faculty member and be an instructor of record for undergraduate courses or be assigned to activities such as assisting with courses or teaching labs, grading assignments and exams, or assisting professors with large lectures and/or online courses. The duties must be attached to a specific course or courses in order for a graduate student to be hired as a GAT.
Graduate Assistant Research (GAR) assistantships require recipients to aid in the research with the department/professor to which they are assigned. Work may also include tasks such as assisting with labs, offering teaching support, assisting faculty with research, preparing reports, entering data or other responsibilities as assigned.
Graduate Assistant Non-teaching (GANT) assistantships are not assigned to a specific course but work in a variety of settings across campus. Responsibilities may be administrative in nature or consist of other activities that do not generally fit within the GAT or GAR job responsibilities.
