All first-time Teaching Assistants are required to attend and successfully complete a 3-day Teaching Assistant Seminar prior to the start of the Fall or Spring Semester. Attendance and successful completion of the Seminar (including a written component) are mandatory and a condition of appointment. Unexcused absences from any portion of the seminar or failure to attend are cause for revocation of the TA award.
All seminar participants must have the approval of their respective departments. Students who are interested in attending the seminar should make a request to their department to participate.
