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.
