The Department of Academic Enrichment and Learning continues to be supportive of teaching efforts in large classrooms of 60 or more students.

The Program

The Large Classroom Assistant (LCA) program supports faculty who are teaching (three or four credit) classes of sixty (60) or more students (for classes of 120 or greater registered students, two LCA’s can be provided). The LCA can assist faculty in any classroom activity deemed appropriate for 6 hours per week for up to 15 weeks a semester at $8.00 per hour.

Large Classroom Assistant's are not permitted to tutor courses. If a faculty member is interested in tutoring for their large classroom, they are eligible for a Learning Assistant and should contact the Tutorial Coordinator to utilize this program.

The Procedure

When a class enrolls the minimum number of students (60), the professor will receive an email alert notifying them they can hire an LCA. Once request is submitted by professor and approved by DAEL Chair, hiring is completed by the requesting professor and ESU Human Resources. Please contact Human Resources with questions regarding the hiring procedure.

Once the professor of the qualifying class hires a student, the funds will be transferred to the receiving department's ISF cost code.

Please note: all requests must be processed no later than the third week of class.

Position Description
