The Identity Management Office (IDM) of Auburn University manages the Banner Faculty role for the Provost Office. The process listed below allows the GTA to be given a faculty role in Banner so they can begin work on their syllabus, add course materials in Canvas and be listed as the instructor of record.
The sponsoring department personnel with AU login credentials will complete the Access Request Form.
The Department Head or Alternate Approver is required, by the Provost Office, to verify all GTA’s meet the SACS criteria.
SACS Commission Guidelines on Faculty Credentials, Section 3.7.1 states the following criteria for GTA:
Graduate teaching assistants: master’s in the teaching discipline or 18 graduate semester hours in the teaching discipline; direct supervision by a faculty member experienced in the teaching discipline; regular in-service training; and planned and periodic evaluations.
The end term will be the student’s graduation date unless otherwise noted by the person completing the form.
The GTA faculty role can be extended if the graduation date changes. The department head will need to supply IDM with a new graduation date in an email to Identity Management (IDM).
