Graduate Research Assistantships

Each year, the NILIE program provides a number of research assistantships to graduate students in the department of Educational Leadership, Policy, and Human Development at North Carolina State University. Working under the direction of faculty experts, these graduate assistants are trained in survey techniques, data analysis and report preparation. They work with individual colleges to conduct assessments and bring their experience and enthusiasm to the survey process. In turn, their studies at the masters and doctoral levels are enriched and broadened. NILIE researchers have the opportunity to make valuable contacts with institutions from across the country. Additionally, NILIE’s survey instruments can be used to develop publications and doctoral dissertations.

The assistantship requires full-time graduate enrollment (9 hours) in the Higher Education program within the department of Educational Leadership, Policy, and Human Development at North Carolina State University and a 20 hour work week with NILIE.
