Engineering Town Hall on Teaching Assistantships


As the pandemic shutdown looms onward, Teaching Assistants across campus continue to struggle to meet deadlines and departmental expectations. Join OrganizeUW for a casual evening conversation led by your Graduate Student Association (GSA) representatives for Civil & Environmental Engineering and Systems Design Engineering to discuss experiences, challenges, and opportunities for TAs in the Faculty of Engineering. Have you received sufficient support to complete your TA duties? Are you receiving the work experience you need for your professional development goals? What can unionization do for you? What concerns do you have as we move into another physically distant semester? Bring your concerns and questions.

May 11, 2021 5:00 PM — 6:00 PM
Online (Webex)
Please register here for the town hall.


  • GSA Councillors from multiple engineering departments (TBD)
  • Graduate student organizer(s) from OrganizeUW (TBD)

Hope to see you there!

Note: In order to facilitate open sharing and discussion, this webinar/town hall meeting will not be recorded. Minutes may be taken, at the discretion of panellists; if so, they will be shared afterwards, within the Faculty of Engineering, among attendees, and/or on this page. All attendee names will remain anonymous.
