"The problem of graduate student overload without proper compensation is a serious one that I have frequently seen during my nearly three decades in higher education across multiple universities," James Garvey, who recently assumed new responsibilities in the graduate school at SIUC, just told GAU.

He added that GAs "should not tolerate over-commitments that tax their degree progress, interfere with their lives, or strain their health."
While exploitative overwork cannot be blamed for my neck injury - or the fact I feel old because 10 years have passed since I graduated high school - it has no doubt been injurious to the health and degree progress of other GAs.
As Garvey suggested, this is not limited to SIUC.
...
Having recently accepted additional responsibilities for the graduate school, James Garvey, interim vice chancellor for research and professor in zoology who writes sci-fi fantasy novels in his spare time, also accepted a request for an interview with GAU. Our union asked him about his new responsibilities, the condition of the graduate school, work conditions for graduate assistants and the protagonist with earth-communing superpowers from one of his novels.
...
Dr. James Garvey: I am delighted to provide my services to the Graduate School.
...
Garvey: As with all things, the biggest problem for the Graduate School revolves around funding.
...
Garvey: Graduate school is an interesting mix of work, lessons, and play.
...
Garvey: Collective bargaining is part of the fabric of shared governance, such as the Graduate Professional Student Council, that SIU celebrates.
...
Garvey: I suspect that fees and other costs of campus life will be a topic of deep consideration in the near future.
...
Garvey: The sad truth about all public universities like SIU is that these schools are rapidly losing the support of public tax dollars and operating more like private institutions.
...
Garvey: I would say that the graduate students have reason to be optimistic that a reconsideration of the caps on workload assignments for graduate assistantships will occur soon.
...
Garvey: The problem of graduate student overload without proper compensation is a serious one that I have frequently seen during my nearly three decades in higher education across multiple universities.
...
Garvey: I love graduate education and enjoy this job immensely.
...
Garvey: Oh, you read my blog and cite my book. I'm not sure whether I should be embarrassed, flattered, or humbled. Amy Marksman is a dear character to me and goes through some pretty harrowing experiences. I hope Graduate School is a cinch in comparison. And if you see little green people like she does, you might want to visit the Student Health Center.
