- Class Scheduling for summer is run by University College (currently Maria Borte)
They will contact you by October/November to confirm which summer classes we plan to offer. Work with Associate Chair & Chair to analyze prior year enrollment counts to determine which courses Physics would like to offer.
University College will enter in all course information for department summer classes once department confirms course offerings and classroom information spreadsheet is complete.
Academic Support Coordinator works with Operations Specialist to give list of instructor positions we will need to set up for hiring in SU Job Opps.
Usually send this out 1st week in February and then request return date by last week in February from students. SIMULTANEOUSLY, first week in February we’ve emailed all faculty to request their plans for RA support with the request to have responses (if possible) by end of February. Though many won’t be able to confirm for weeks/months, we will have an idea of those graduate students who will be available to hire as instructors.
Operations Specialist will submit info to hire the instructors we’ve chosen to all relevant parties. Then once approved at all levels (i.e., CAS), Human Resources will generate formal offer letters to graduate students who will be the summer instructors. Departments do not do the letter production or tracking process. University College will also enter the instructor information into MySlice with the class schedule.
University College may ask for support determining salaries. They will tell you the pay for credit hour for varying titles (T1, T2 GA)
T1 instructors are all first year grad students
T2 are those who have earned a Master’s or equivalent – in past years, this is any departmental grads who have passed quals (ie., 2nd+ year students)
GAs are all students teaching lab or recitations but NOT the head instructor (i.e. AST 101, 104, PHY 101, 102, PHY 211 recitation, PHY 212 recitation --- BUT NOT PHY 221, 222 since those are head instructors in summer)
