Attention Graduate Assistants: Congratulations, you’ve earned a raise!

As you may have heard, our new contract was reconsidered by the Rhode Island Board of Governors for Higher Education on Monday evening and was passed unanimously! This means you may be eligible for retroactive payment for your assistantship going back to September 1, 2011. We are eagerly awaiting further instructions and details from the administration, but in the meantime, we need your updated contact information so we can get your check to you as soon as possible.

To update your contact information, you can go directly to e-campus and update your profile with your most recent information. If you have recently graduated, please email Graduate Assistants UNITED directly at We will need your student ID, graduation date, mailing address, and the best email address to reach you at in case we need to get in touch with you in short order.

As always, if you have any questions feel free to contact the GAU at, or call us at 401.874.2826. You can also swing by our office on Tuesdays and Thursdays throughout the summer in Roosevelt Hall, Room 307.


Thank you to all who were involved in the negotiating process for your hard work!
