Overall Organization of the Graduate Assistantship Program

The graduate assistantship program is overseen by the Office of Graduate Studies in Academic Affairs. About 85 graduate assistantship (GA) positions are offered annually. Each school and several departments are annually allotted GA positions. Each department allocated a GA position prepares a job posting for our Human Resource (HR) department. The posting is administratively submitted to HR by the designated office administrative assistant. The person identified as the GA supervisor interviews candidates, makes the hiring decision, and oversees the work of the GA.
