Graduate Council

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 Director 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 Director of the Graduate School and the deans of the academic colleges. The appointment of college representatives is made 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 Appeals

Student submissions are due to the Graduate School in Hanna 241 a minimum of two weeks prior to the Graduate Council meeting. College Graduate Appeals Committee decisions are due to the Graduate School one week prior to the Graduate Council meeting.

All Other Agenda Items

Due two weeks prior to meeting date in the Graduate School Office. Please note that anyone who is not a full-time employee of ULM must have Adjunct Faculty status in order to be an Associate Member of the Graduate Faculty.
