Opportunities for Graduate Students

The Division of Student Development's Graduate Assistant Application Process

The University’s Catholic and Marianist identity calls us to develop our character and integrity as leaders to building community in our world.  Graduate assistants play an integral role in this process, helping the Division and related departments support and enhance the University’s mission to learn, lead, and serve.  Each year, we are excited to offer a range of competitive graduate assistantships that provide valuable opportunities for graduate students, faculty, staff, administrators, and others to collaborate for the betterment of our full university and surrounding community. 

Graduate students in any program may apply for a variety of assistantship opportunities across many departments within the Division of Student Development. 

Available opportunities include placements in the offices of: 

Housing and Residence Life
Community Wellness Services
Greek Life & Leadership Programs 
Information Technology
Student Life and Kennedy Union 
Campus Recreation
New Student Programs 
Leadership Development 
Communications & Community Relations  

Office of Multicultural Affairs

Two of our campus partners, ArtStreet and Career Services, also take part in our Application process.

Candidates may apply for an assistantship even if they have not been accepted into an academic program at the time of application. An official offer of a graduate assistantship is contingent upon the candidate’s acceptance into an academic program. The application process for assistantships is separate from any application process for admission to an academic program.If you have any questions regarding assistantships, please contact the Graduate Assistant Selection Chair Kevin Cane  at kcane1@udayton.edu or call 937-229-4129.
