Each department or program on campus that employs international graduate students as teaching assistants has a faculty or staff member who’s been appointed their department’s liaison to the OEPP. The liaison is usually a graduate administrator, secretary, advisor, or other staff member who works with the graduate students in their area.
What do department liaisons do? Liaisons are the link between the OEPP and the international graduate students needing our services. Liaisons make it possible for OEPP staff to efficiently handle the high volume of students who are screened for oral English proficiency, and to assist students who are enrolled in ENGL 62000 each semester. OEPP staff work with department liaisons on all administrative matters rather than directly with students.
