What are Graduate Facilitators?
Graduate Facilitators (GFs) work in the Student Learning Commons (SLC) and assist students in a variety of disciplines, individually or in groups, to help them develop and improve their academic skills and strategies. Graduate Facilitators are graduate students when they are hired, but often work for one or two semesters beyond their graduation. They work on one of four different teams:
- Graduate English as an Additional Language (EAL) Facilitator: Works with EAL students with the goal of helping them develop and improve their spoken and written academic English proficiency
- Graduate Learning Facilitator: Works primarily with undergraduate students with the goal of helping them develop and improve their academic learning strategies, such as study techniques, academic reading, note‐taking, and time management. A key part of the role is working with students in academic difficulty who are enrolled in the Back on Track program to develop learning plans.
- Graduate Writing Facilitator (undergraduate writing): Works primarily with undergraduate students to help them develop and strengthen their writing.
- Graduate Writing Facilitator (graduate writing): Works with graduate students to help them develop and strengthen their writing. This may involve substantial review and work with students
