Welcome to the International Teaching Assistant Program at The University of Utah’s Graduate School. Beginning in 1993, workshops for prospective ITAs have prepared and supported international graduate students, recognizing that they are a vital part of the teaching mission of our campus.
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.
