Review of Graduate Faculty Membership

Review of Graduate Faculty Membership

Each Graduate Faculty member's and Visiting Member's scholarly research, creative activity and involvement in the discipline and graduate education is reviewed by the Graduate Council every six years. The purpose of this review is to determine if the faculty member's current Graduate Faculty status is appropriate and warranted. The review process is the same as for the initial selection process; however, the options open to the Council are more numerous and include:

  1. approve continued membership in the current status for six years,
  2. refuse to approve Graduate Faculty Status, or
  3. provide a three-year provisional term as graduate faculty. If this option is chosen, the faculty member must be reviewed again after three years and either approved for a regular six-year membership or dropped from Graduate Faculty membership. Graduate Faculty whose status is terminated may, after one calendar year, reapply for graduate status.
