Graduate Teaching Assistants
The Mansfield Center is currently seeking UM graduate students for international programs!
The Graduate Teaching Assistant positions will work closely with Mansfield Center staff to provide academic and cultural guidance, facilitate group cohesion, and provide logistical support to international participants of U.S. Department of State sponsored programs including the Young Southeast Asian Leaders Initiative on Environmental Issues, the Study of the U.S. Institute on Secondary Education and the Study of the U.S. Institute for Scholars in Contemporary American Literature hosted by the Maureen and Mike Mansfield Center at the University of Montana. Over the course of each program, participants attend classes, seminars and leadership workshops, engage in hands-on fieldwork, develop a deeper understanding of US culture & society, and make lasting international connections. Throughout the programs, these groups are joined by University of Montana student leaders and community host families who show participants what they love about Missoula while also learning more about participants’ home countries.
Tasks will include building and maintaining relationships with program participants, accompanying participants on local and national study tours, providing introductions of UM and community leader speakers to the group, ensuring the group follows the program schedule closely, and communicating daily reports directly to program coordinators and officers.
