On May 10, graduate workers in the humanities and social sciences received an email from Dean Woodruff regarding eligibility requirements for TGS-funded interdisciplinary graduate assistantships. According to the email, TGS will no longer approve these assistantships for students beyond their fifth year. This policy and its abrupt enforcement put many graduate workers in a precarious position, especially those currently in their sixth year.
NUGW is petitioning TGS to reverse this decision. You can read and sign our decision below or at this link:
