Graduate Council

The purpose of the council is to discuss and approve such things as graduate program policy, program review, and the strategic plan for graduate education.


The graduate council consists of the Vice Provost, Academic Programs (Chair), a faculty member (graduate coordinator) from each master's program, and one student representative from each college.

Graduate Student Representatives

One student from each college is encouraged to join the Graduate Council for one academic year as a Graduate Student Representative. The Graduate Student Representative will have the responsibility to make their views and the views of the graduate student body known through the expression of student opinions on decisions affecting academic policy and procedures, as well as academic program approvals and/or changes.


Graduate council meetings take place on the 1st Monday of the month (unless a holiday) from 3-4 p.m. Location for all is TBA.
