Graduate Committees

In addition to all matters pertaining to graduate students, the Graduate School is responsible for the organization of the Graduate Council and is centrally involved in the process of adding new course and programs (both graduate and undergraduate). The Graduate School is also the home college for many interdisciplinary degree programs (M.S. and Ph.D. in Cell & Molecular Biology (CEMB), M.A. and Ph.D. in Comparative Literature and Cultural Studies (CLCS), M.S. and Ph.D. in Microelectronics-Photonics (MEPH), M.F.A. in Translation (TRAN), Ph.D. in Environmental Dynamics (ENDY), Ph.D. in Plant Science (PTSC), Ph.D. in Public Policy (PUBP), and M.S. and Ph.D.  in Space and Planetary Sciences (CSAPS)) and one graduate certificate program (Gerontology (GERO)). From this page, we provide links useful for each of these areas.

The charter and membership for the Graduate Dean's Student Advisory Board might be helpful to those wishing to encourage their students to be more involved in service activities.

If you are attempting to add programs or courses, please see the Academic Policy Series on the Provost's web site. You can also view the schedule for the University Course and Programs Committee, the Graduate Council, the University Program Review Committee and the Faculty Senate. The meeting schedule for the Board of Trustees can be found on the web site of the Vice Chancellor for Finance and Administration. The Department of Higher Education web site provides information and forms for proposing new programs or major alterations to existing programs.
