Graduate Assistantships are designed to provide financial support and research opportunities for graduate students while they pursue their degree. Graduate Assistants aid one or more faculty mentors in their research or other assigned work and are expected to be highly available. All Graduate Assistants are required to provide 20 hours of service per week (September-June) including during academic breaks and attend weekly seminars.
