Teaching Mentors

A rigorous application process culminates in the selection of 32 outstanding individuals to be awarded a teaching mentor position.

Selected for their excellence in teaching and overall graduate study, and representing colleges and disciplines from across the university, the teaching mentors comprise the “core faculty” during the Teaching Assistant Orientation Program. The teaching mentors serve as small group leaders and mentors to approximately 300 new TAs each August. They also participate in the development and implementation of teaching assistant program activities throughout the academic year and act as teaching consultants for the Graduate School.
