Role of Graduate Assistants in the I.E. Program


The purpose of this position paper is not to ignite discontent with the present role of GAs, but rather to focus attention on a select number of issues regarding GAs that should be of interest to the forensics community and, particularly, to programs employing them. My comments and speculations represent my own experiences as a GA during masters and doctoral work, including responsibility for directing a forensics program during doctoral study. These thoughts are also a function of having worked with some two dozen GAs during my 13 years as a full-time faculty director of forensics.
