UTA Program


Brown's Computer Science TA program is unlike any other. It employs more than 200 undergradutes each semester, and every one of these students is given the chance to effect change, working closely with the professor, other TAs, and other students. TAs and non-TAs alike can use this page to better understand the TA program, what it has to offer, and what a TA has the opportunity to do.

The Meta TAs for 2016-2017 are Emma Herold and Marley Rafson.



Named UTAships

Generous gifts from the donors of the Brown CS UTA Endowment have funded dozens of UTAships to help this important program continue for years to come. As of November, 2016, we have awarded approximately half of the funded UTAships this semester, and will award the rest next semester. As pledged UTAships become funded to at least a 20% level, those additional UTAships will be awarded. Here are the current recipients of named UTAships:
