UTA Program

avd.jpg

Our undergraduate teaching assistant (UTA) 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 UTAs, and other students. UTAs and non-UTAs alike can use this page to better understand the UTA program, what it has to offer, and what a UTA has the opportunity to do.

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