Chemistry Department Accepting Applications for Chemistry Learning Assistants (CLAs)

Students working on chemistry problems in an Active Learning classroom setting

The Chemistry Department is now accepting applications for Chemistry Learning Assistants (CLAs) for the Fall 2023 semester. CLAs are the individuals who rotate during recitation sessions and help answer questions. In addition, they help out with exam review sessions, provide office hours, create supplementary study resources, etc. Overall, being a CLA is a 5-hour weekly commitment which includes 1 hour for recitation, 2 hours towards creating/contributing to a supplementary activity, 1 hour for prep (on your own time), and 1 hour for a weekly meeting. If you expect (or have) made a grade of B or higher in the class you want to be a CLA in, you qualify to apply. 

First-time CLAs are also required to take CHEM3710 which is a participation-based class that will be held on Friday‚Äôs from 3:00-3:50 PM. This course qualifies for experiential credit, and if you already have to take the full organic chemistry sequence, you may take CHEM3710 twice (over two semesters) to attain 6 of the 9 required upper division CHEM hours for a minor in chemistry.   

Applicants who apply by May 1st will receive full consideration, but applications will be accepted past this date.
