VI. Graduate Program Committees
Membership of Graduate Program Committees | Duties and Responsibilities of Graduate Program Committees
For each graduate program, or appropriate group of graduate programs or majors (subject to the approval of Graduate Council), there shall be a graduate program committee (GPC), acting on delegated authority from Graduate Council, for general supervision of the program (see Duties and Responsibilities).
The composition of each GPC will be recommended annually by the appropriate faculty council/s (referring to the faculty or faculties delivering the program or programs under the purview of that particular GPC), no later than May 1 to the Executive Committee of Graduate Council.
Terms of GPC Chairs and members shall normally be for a minimum of two years and a maximum of three years, beginning on July 1 and ending on June 30. The appropriate faculty council shall recommend alternate members, or an alternate Chair, in cases where mid-term vacancies arise.
The name, academic areas of oversight, and voting membership of any GPC is subject to the final approval of Graduate Council.
GPC meetings shall be conducted according to Robert’s Rules of Order.
