To advance the quality of instruction in our undergraduate programs and to improve the professional mentoring and financial support for graduate students, College policy is that all GRS graduate students who teach CAS courses as the instructors of record will be appointed as Senior Teaching Fellows (STFs) and concurrently as Lecturers.
Such a student will receive the standard GRS Teaching Fellow (TF) stipend for the semester, and will register in and receive a tuition scholarship for the appropriate XX 699 Teaching Fellow course.
This practice has the following advantages:
For each student STF/Lecturer, the department should forward to the Office of Faculty Actions the following packet:
Deadlines: the STF packets detailed above should be submitted prior to July 1 for the Fall semester and prior to November 1 for the Spring semester.
The GRS financial aid form is not available electronically.
GRS coordinates with the Office of Faculty Actions to make STF/Lecturer appointments. STF/Lecturer positions are allocated on the basis of instructional need, replacing already-budgeted lecturer positions (funding for which contributes to the STF stipend). Specific approval by the Dean’s Office is required in each instance. These STF positions are in addition to the department’s base allocation of TFs for its regular needs for discussion sections and laboratory sections. STF lecturers are generally advanced students who are not themselves taking courses; their tuition requirements are expected to be at the two-credit level.
