This handbook defines the roles of Teaching Assistants (TA’s) at Oregon College of Oriental Medicine. Teaching assistants provide important support to the college’s faculty and students. As such, they are valued community members who have particular rights and responsibilities. These, along with policies and procedures, are outlined in this handbook. Teaching assistants should be aware of general information about OCOM as outlined annually in the academic catalog. Of special importance to teaching assistants are: the college’s mission statement and values; competencies expected of OCOM graduates; grading policies; attendance policies; and the overview of OCOM curriculum. Maintaining awareness of these issues will enable teaching assistants to appropriately reinforce the college’s mission, values, academic standards, policies, and procedures. The current academic catalog can be downloaded from the college’s online Publications Archive.
