Welcome to the International Teaching Assistant Program. Beginning in 1993, evaluation and training has prepared and supported prospective ITAs at the University of Utah, recognizing that they are a vital part of the teaching mission of our university and a valued part of our campus community.
Graduate School policy requires all graduate students who are non-native speakers of North American English to be cleared by the ITA Program in order to be eligible for benefits awarded for work as Teaching Assistants. Pre-semester ITA Trainings prepare ITAs for their teaching assignments. Spoken English classes and ITA Seminars are held during Fall and Spring semesters.
