Research & Teaching Assistants

Research Assistants

Faculty can apply for Team UTRAs (Undergraduate Teaching and Research Awards) and Interdisciplinary Team UTRAs to fund multiple undergraduates working with faculty on research projects full-time during the summer and/or part-time during the academic year. 

The Swearer Center also coordinates the Royce Fellowship, which supports undergraduate students as they carry out engaged research projects of their own design in locations across the United States and around the world. Fellows conduct their research under the supervision of a faculty member and as part of an interdisciplinary cohort of students from across the university.

Teaching Assistants

Faculty can apply to work with undergraduate students to plan and implement CBLR courses through the Swearer Center’s Community-Based Learning and Research (CBLR) Fellows program. Faculty and students have already been selected for the 2020-21 pilot cohort, but interested instructors are encouraged to email [email protected], as new openings may arise.

The Sheridan Center for Teaching and Learning supports undergraduate peer-to-peer teaching fellowships through its Learning Collaborative, who may be able to work with faculty on specific aspects of community-engaged courses (e.g., Writing Fellows on writing assignments, Data Science Fellows on data analysis projects).
