Undergraduate Teaching Fellowships
Each UTF is assigned to a faculty member in a specific undergraduate course and helps primarily in classroom management. The UTF may operate the audio-visual equipment, organize hand-outs, take attendance, and maintain grades. Teaching fellows must normally maintain a grade point average of 3.3 in their history courses and expected to work in a course they have already taken. Notice whether these classes employ a UTF and what tasks the UTF performs. Be sure to speak to the professor about the possibility of working in the course in the future. Nearly all UTF assignments are made in the spring semester for the following academic year. Speak with Professor Frances Titchener if you have any questions, and be sure to start applying for a position in February or March for the upcoming academic year.
