A brief description of the institution’s programs that help increase the diversity of higher education faculty :
UNBC runs a Teaching Assistanship program to: 1) provide financial assistance to graduate students; 2) enhance the curriculum vitae of graduate students with valuable teaching experience; 3) expose students to, and develop students as, colleagues in teaching; and 4) provide critical assistance for teaching.
The program is open to all graduate students, including diverse groups (e.g. International students) that are not always eligible for employment off campus.
The program also offers training workshops, peer-to-peer learning opportunities and recognition of exceptional teaching through awards.
