Applications for spring 2022 Honors Colloquium Teaching Assistants are now open! Application deadline is Monday, March 15, 2021 at noon.

What an exciting time to become an Honors Colloquium TA! Spring 2022 Honors Colloquium will again consist of approximately 15-17 sections (with roughly 24 students), each led by an upper-class Honors Colloquium Teaching Assistant.  The course will continue to provide an opportunity for students to delve into the city of Buffalo through research, community engagement, and small group projects. All students enrolled will also earn a Community Engagement digital badge for their work in the course. TAs will enroll in a one credit hour training course in the fall semester (new TAs will also complete a digital badge for an additional Honors credit), and earn three credits for teaching their section in the spring semester. This is an excellent opportunity to gain teaching and leadership skills while completing five Honors College experience credits!

We will also be holding an information session next week to provide more details and answer questions. Day and time: TBA. An official announcement will be sent later this week.

Teaching Assistant Minimum Qualifications:

  • Successful completion of HON 102: Freshmen Honors Colloquium with an A- or better.
  • Good standing in the Honors College.
  • Be able to enroll in HON 495 in the fall (one credit – Pass/Fail) and spring (three credits – Pass/Fail).
  • Have completed at least 60 academic credit hours by the end of summer 2021.
  • Be available to facilitate one section of HON 102 in the spring 2022 semester.
