Council of the Graduate School

Responsibilities of the Council of the Graduate School are outlined in the Faculty Handbook as follows:

Section VI.C.2.b.
The Council of the Graduate School considers matters related to doctoral programs in all schools and Arts and Sciences master’s degree programs (except for “professional” Arts and Sciences master’s degree programs). Subject to the approval of the Board of Trustees, the Council of the Graduate School recommends the establishment or discontinuation of such graduate degree programs and their requirements. The Council reviews proposals with respect to these degree programs; makes recommendations for the award of advanced degrees in these programs; and formulates, subject to the approval of the Provost and the appropriate school Dean, regulations governing these programs. The Dean of Arts and Sciences ensures that changes in the graduate curriculum that have important consequences for undergraduate education are brought to the attention of the Undergraduate Curriculum Committee for review.
