Graduate Student Instructors 

Please submit the Graduate Student Instructor's (GSI's) updated CV, a department letter from the Chair addressed to the Dean, and CCI approval (see below) to Laura Jackson to request a GSI appointment.

To request CCI approval, please submit GSI requests for undergraduate courses through the CARS Portal. You must follow this process even if the GSI teaching request meets the criteria for CCI blanket approval, as this process captures the approval of the department chair and the dean.

The department letter from the department chair should include details such as the proposed title (Associate In or Teaching Fellow), proposed salary rate, begin and end dates of the appointment, percent time, who the GSI's faculty mentor will be, information about the course the GSI is teaching, and why a GSI is teaching the course instead of a faculty member.
