Department of English
Teaching Associate Program
Returning to the Program
An application is current for 5 years or until graduation, whichever comes first, when a graduate student has been approved as a Teaching Associate within the English Department. An active graduate student is now considered in the "TA Pool." All active TA graduate students are maintained on the ENGLTA listserv. Returning and continuing information is constantly posted.
If a TA has requested a semester off from teaching, all that is required to return to the TA Program is an email reply to the Intent to Return email on the listserv.
The TA Hiring Committee enforces Unit 11 CBR by ensuring all TAs are evaluated every semester. The TA Hiring Committee approves all returning TAs and places them in appropriate teaching sections.
