Graduate Assistant Resources

The Graduate Assistant Institute provides professional development opportunities for all graduate assistants and is required for all new teaching and research assistants on the Moscow campus. Students not located on the Moscow campus will be required to complete a Blackboard course. Topics include: U of I academic policies and procedures, available resources, teaching methods and the responsibilities of conducting responsible research, which are highly beneficial to new graduate assistants.

Continuing graduate assistants, who have attended the Graduate Assistant Institute or have taken the Graduate Assistant BbLearn online course, are not required to attend this event, but are highly encouraged. The Institute is a great way to refresh your knowledge.

This training is required to hold an assistantship, failure to participate will result in loss of your assistantship.
