Graduate Council

The Graduate Council is an advisory body, composed of the graduate program directors, student representatives and the Graduate Dean (ex-officio), and the Provost (ex-officio) whose function is to recommend modifications or changes in graduate policy to the Provost. The main objectives of the Graduate Council are to promote excellence in research and scholarship beyond the undergraduate level and to strengthen existing graduate programs, and review and support the development of new programs. Among their concerns are admission standards, degree requirements, and program review and approval.
