This past spring the School of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Council reviewed the assistantship personnel program and policies. Updated general information concerning assistantships may be found at: http://www.wiu.edu/graduate_studies/prospective_students/gainfo.php.
Areas in which changes or additions were made include:
- Revision of the guiding principle statement for assistantship awards emphasizing the spirit with which assistantships should be utilized.
- Development of an Assistantship Personnel Incident Report which may be used to record inappropriate behavior/performance incidences, foster communication between hiring department and the assistant, and supplement performance evaluations.
- Development of time reporting policies that are flexible to hiring departments with assistantship positions, but that is also fair to assistantship personnel.
- Creation of a new assistantship category - Teaching Support Assistant (TSA).
Should you have any questions concerning the assistantship personnel program, please feel free to contact the School of Graduate Studies at (309) 298-1806 or Grad-Office@wiu.edu.
