|2.7 GRADUATE FACULTY
A current list of Full, Associate and Joint Members of the Graduate Faculty is available online [please wait a few seconds for the list to load]. It includes each faculty memberís name, department, status (associate or full member), appointment date, and end-of-appointment date. Faculty members need to apply through their department and the deanís office of their college/school for reappointment to the graduate faculty during the fifth year of their six-year appointment, in order to continue to teach graduate courses, serve on thesis and dissertation committees, and chair dissertation committees (full members only.)
A list of Temporary Graduate Faculty is also available online [please wait a few seconds for the list to load]. The graduate dean appoints such faculty to perform specific functions (e.g., serving on a thesis or dissertation committee) for a finite period of time, and the appointment ends when the function is completed.
Graduate Faculty Appointment Procedure
The procedure is the same for initial appointments and renewal appointments. The department chair sends the dean of the college an appointment request either for full, associate or temporary graduate faculty status.
The department chair attaches the faculty memberís current curriculum vitae to the request. The dean of the college reviews the request and, if the dean approves, forwards the request to the dean of the graduate school. The dean of the graduate school reviews the request and responds to the dean of the college, the department chair and the graduate faculty candidate.
[Note. Information on Qualifications of Graduate Faculty (such as full vs. associate vs. temporary status) is available at the Graduate Schoolís homepage, A-Z index, and in Section 2 of this Catalog.]
