Graduate Assistantships

Make the most of graduate school: become a Student Development Graduate Assistant.

A defining hallmark of the University of Dayton Student Development Graduate Assistant Program is the strong dedication to challenging each person to develop morally, intellectually, spiritually and professionally to enact the University’s Commitment to Community in all facets of life.

Our graduate assistants commit themselves to build inclusivity, respect, and integrity, all while integrating learning and living at the University of Dayton. Aligned with the Commitment to Community, our graduate assistants enter a strong network supported by mentors and supervisors who challenge and engage personal and professional growth and the GA cohort, formed through social and professional events offered outside of the classroom.

Student Development GA’s are valued as contributing staff members, serving on impactful University committees, shaping the University of Dayton community through their roles, and preparing for success in their career following graduate school.
