The following criteria are considered in applications for reappointment
The department expects TAs to fulfill their contracts with the university in a professional manner. They should be on campus from the first to the last day of the semester, they should administer their own final exams, and they should turn in their grades on time. TAs who cannot teach their class for an academic or professional reason (e.g., taking the MA exam, presenting a paper at a conference) are required to inform the supervisor beforehand and to arrange for a qualified substitute. It is the responsibility of the absent TA to inform the supervisor in person, not through the substitute. In the case of personal problems (e.g., illness, death in the family, a car accident), TAs must arrange for a qualified substitute and inform the supervisor as soon as possible.
The Department of Romance Languages and Literatures does not permit TAs to date or go out with their own students.
TAs who fail to fulfill these responsibilities will receive a letter of reprimand for their files. After repeated offenses, the departmental faculty will also vote to take one or more of the following measures
