All new graduate students are required to complete the Academic Integrity Online Module within the first 8 weeks of the term. In addition, graduate students should become familiar with the following resources:
Teaching Assistantship (TA) Training
If you are a graduate student that will be a Teaching Assistant, then you are required to complete the Conflict Management Human Rights Office (CMAHRO) Harassment and Discrimination online module and the quiz. Please see the Mathematics graduate teaching assistant page for more details.
Mental health training for Teaching Assistants
The Mathematics faculty strongly recommends that all TAs complete the mental health training created by the Centre for Teaching Excellence. It is an an online, self-paced, asynchronous module to assist you with situations related to mental health that may arise during academic courses.
Sexual Violence Awareness and Support
The University of Waterloo is deeply committed to creating a safe environment wherein all students, faculty and staff can flourish. We are taking action to make our campus safer, while providing support for those who have experienced sexual violence.
The University of Waterloo realizes that raising awareness and providing education on sexual violence are key steps in aiding the prevention of incidents; hence we encourage our students to take advantage of the online training: Sexual Violence Awareness HRE101 (20 min) created by the Equity Office.
