TAs and GAs

As a teaching or graduate assistant, you play an imperative role in promoting academic integrity here at Miami. Whether you are evaluating student work, marking assignments, or assisting other faculty or departments, you are aiding in the success and standards of academic integrity expected by the University.

Depending on the department you are working for, you may be expected to take action against a student suspected of academic dishonesty by bringing the situation to the attention of the supervising instructor. You may also be called on as a witness. Therefore, it's important that you familiarize yourself with expectations regarding academic integrity for both undergraduates and graduate students.

Most importantly, you should work closely and continuously with your faculty or staff member to make sure all measures are taken to prevent academic dishonesty. See links to the left for additional information about expectations for undergraduates and graduate students as well as faculty.
