1.5—Graduate Studies Committee
Local Graduate Studies Committees are charged with the responsibility for conducting specific graduate programs within the context of the policies and rules established by the Graduate School. The Graduate School’s rules and policies are the minimum standards within which local Graduate Studies Committees formulate, publish, and enforce their own graduate program policies, rules, and procedures. Graduate Studies Committees serve as the primary liaison between the Graduate Faculty and the Graduate School. Section XIV of the Graduate School Handbook summarizes the responsibilities of the Graduate Studies Committees and Graduate Studies Committee chairs.
