Graduate Assistantships

Graduate Assistantship

The Graduate Assistant (GA) is a part-time professional staff member in the Department of Residential Life and is enrolled in a master's degree program at Northeastern. The GA, while having administrative duties, is also responsible for working directly within Residential Life to support student staff and provide them with development opportunities. In addition, GA's serve on a departmental committee, Graduate Assistant Growth Experience or (GAGE). This provides the GA's with the opportunity to serve on a committee that provides a strong focus on the empowerment and professional development of the Graduate staff during their time with the department.
