Students: Become a ULA or Grader
The ULA program partners faculty with a student who has completed their class to provide teaching support. Responsibilities may include holding office hours, finding instructional materials, testing new assignments, providing technical support, and more. ULAs also provide near-peer mentoring to support student success.
Applications for ULA and Grading Assistant positions are now closed. Check back in spring for applications for fall 2023.
I thought this program was wonderfully beneficial to me, my TA team, and my ULA. I highly recommend this program for other instructors and undergraduates interested.
The students really talked about how much they appreciated having another point of view and insights into their work/assignments.
I cannot say enough positive things about this program...We get to see our students in a different role and we also get to have help and insight about our students.
Day in the Life of a ULA
I love being a ULA, it was one of the best experiences of UT.
Being in the ULA program for the past 2 semesters definitely gave me the confidence and skills needed to do well in my internship and land me a return offer in my dream city. Thanks for everything and especially for the encouragement y'all have given me!
It’s been an amazing experience to help so many people. Students actually thanked me and said it had been so helpful to have someone they felt they could talk to and freely ask questions.
Watch a ULA Work
I learned how to better manage my time, how to truly understand the subject matter and be able to teach it to others. I formed a really great relationship with my professor and the TAs I work with.
Overall, it was an incredible experience and extremely valuable in my education. It's something that will stick with me.
I expect that the connections I made through this experience will last beyond college, and that my ability to interact, communicate, and instruct with others as a team has improved.
I think this experience was very unique, and I am grateful that I was able to be part of it...I learned leadership skills, how to communicate with different people, and how to better understand the perspectives of teachers and students.
