Join the Effort for Affordable Education

Undergraduate-Graduate Alliance

The U.G.A. understands that grads and undergrads share a key feature in common – we are students. As grads and undergrads we share the vision and the fight for equitable education. Students at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign are stronger when we learn, work, and fight together.

Keep Undergraduate Tuition Wavers

Undergraduate TAs are a vital part of the Illinois chemistry curriculum. We work either 25 or 33% assistantships (depending on CLC tutoring hours) and have been receiving tuition waivers and monthly stipends as compensation.

Starting next semester, waivers are being taken away. We have not been told how much we will be making in place of them. In fact, the administration (of both LAS and Chemistry) has yet to officially tell us that we’re no longer getting waivers – we’ve been relying on information passed down by faculty members, who have been instructed by the chemistry administration not to speak about this issue.
