Graduate Assistants Equity Workshops

The Graduate Assistants’ Equity Workshops (GAEWs) focusing on diversity, discrimination and harassment are offered 17 times each academic year by the Division of Diversity, Equity and Educational Achievement in conjunction with campus partners.  These sessions are open to Teaching Assistants (TAs), Program/Project Assistants (PAs), and Research Assistants (RAs).

Participants receive information about relevant laws, policies, regulations and resources; explore the practical application of these policies to learning, teaching, and work environments; and engage in conversations designed to promote interdisciplinary dialogue and excellence through diversity.  The GAEWs promote the development of competencies that sustain and strengthen UW-Madison’s position of preeminence in research and higher education and advance critical campus strategic priorities.  Teaching Assistants cannot be reappointed for more than one semester unless they have completed this professional development program
