The Graduate Council Governs Graduate Education

About Us


Brian Frost

The Graduate Council reviews and recommends to the President, through the Provost Office, and subject to approval of the Graduate Dean, policy matters pertaining to graduate education, such as graduate teaching, graduate program needs, and graduate student and faculty research. The Graduate Council reviews and evaluates proposed and existing graduate programs and recommends priorities to be adopted in graduate education, scholarship, and research. The Graduate Council includes graduate faculty members from each college and school that grants a graduate degree, Faculty Senate, the Graduate Dean, Associate Dean, and the current Graduate Student Association President.
