GSI Hiring Information

Teaching is an important element of the American Culture doctoral program and graduate student instructor (GSI) positions in courses taught by the Department are assigned first to American Culture graduate students and those in our affiliated programs. Consequently, we rarely recruit students from outside this pool. If we do have positions available, they will be advertised university-wide via the Academic Human Resources process. 

American Culture's Class Size guidelines for GSIs can be found here.

All override requests must be sent to the Academic Program Specialist ( An override will not be processed if it will exceed the classroom capacity or maximum section size limit noted in the above policy above. In accordance with the GEO|U-M collective bargaining agreement, no GSI shall be required to accept enrollees in excess of the maximum section size.

Questions should be addressed to the Graduate Coordinator, Katia Kitchen.
