The Graduate Teaching Fellows (GTF) are a cohort of graduate students from various disciplines who work with faculty in the Center for Teaching and Learning to support TA and future faculty programs. As graduate student ambassadors for CTL, they support and extend our reach into their academic units.

Participants in the program develop mentorship, leadership, and management skills, enhance their teaching and learning expertise, and build connections with fellow graduate students.
