Graduate Faculty Guidelines

Members of the graduate faculty play a central role in graduate education. They are responsible for program content, they serve on graduate student committees, they foster University-wide research, scholarship, and creative endeavors, and they assure the quality of preparation of the University’s graduates. Application to and appointment as graduate faculty occur at the college/school level. Each college/school establishes and publishes application, evaluation, and appointment/re-appointment processes and criteria for graduate faculty membership. College/school criteria may be more, but not less, stringent than the University-wide criteria described in this document. College/school processes and criteria must be approved by the Graduate Council.
