The Graduate Council was formed to enable a cadre of faculty with significant experience and achievement in graduate education to assist in the review and implementation of campus graduate studies issues. Working with the Dean of the Graduate School, the Graduate Council serves to assess and implement initiatives that foster successful graduate education involving faculty and students.
In addition to serving as an advisory body, the members of the Graduate Council make recommendations on policies for the Graduate School and serve as the final arbiter for student-related appeals.
Members of the Graduate Council are appointed for three-year terms by the Provost and Vice President for Academic Affairs in consultation with the Dean of the Graduate School and the deans of the academic colleges. The appointment of college representatives is done on a staggered basis to maintain continuity of experience.
The Graduate Council meets at a minimum once per month to hear student appeals and
approve membership for candidacy for Graduate Faculty positions.
Student submissions are due to Graduate School (Hanna 241) two (2) weeks prior to Graduate Council meeting. College Graduate Appeals Committee decisions are due to Graduate School one (1) week prior to Graduate Council meeting.
