Instructions for Faculty and Instructors
Faculty are responsible for finding students that would be interested in being a UTA for their classes. We encourage faculty to actively recruit students who meet the requirements and would be a great fit for this experience. When you have found a student, please direct them to talk with our Academic Advisor, Desi Anderson about becoming a UTA.
The Department of Communication Office and our Undergraduate Academic Advisor are not responsible for finding students who would like to be a UTA. The Office will help facilitate the process once a student has been selected.
