University Resources

Graduate Student Organization: The Graduate Student Organization (GSO) is comprised of graduate student representatives from various departments that give graduate students a voice with regards to campus issues. They have provide a variety of resources (including travel/research grants), legal representation, and hold a variety of events - typically at the Inn Complete.

Future Professoriate Program: The Future Professoriate Program (FPP) is a professional development program for graduate students who hope to get a job in higher education. Accepted members into the program receive independent mentoring, a FPP stipend, and a certificate in University teaching to make them more competitive in their future career.

Teaching Mentor: Graduate students accepted as teaching mentors help advise and train incoming graduate teaching assistants at Syracuse University. While this typically involves only the graduate teaching orientation, they do help with a number of events throughout the year.

Graduate Teaching Assistant Services: This site provides links to a number of services provided by Syracuse University for its teaching assistants. This includes opportunities to have ones teaching recorded and evaluated as well as opportunities to visit the classroom of distinguished faculty.
