Graduate School

Graduate Board

The Graduate Board is the representative body of the Graduate Faculty that governs graduate education. It is composed of 30 tenured or tenure-track faculty members elected by the Graduate Faculty. Among the duties of the Graduate Board are reviewing all proposals for new and continuing graduate programs and hearing academic appeals. Members of the Board serve on various committees, including Appeals, Fellowship, Policy, and Program Review, and make recommendations to the Vice Provost of the Graduate School on matters related to graduate education.

Each Spring, an election is held to fill 10 seats for a 3-year term that begins the following Fall term. Graduate Faculty members may serve two consecutive terms.
