Graduate Faculty, Graduate Faculty Representative, Graduate Council
The graduate faculty are those members of the general faculty approved to conduct graduate education at Ohio State. Although appointment to the faculty must precede appointment to the graduate faculty and is a condition of it, a faculty appointment does not in itself confer graduate faculty membership. See Section 15 of the Graduate School Handbook.
Graduate faculty representative
Graduate faculty at Ohio State serve as graduate faculty representatives on doctoral exams for those students taking second candidacy examinations and final oral examinations (defenses).
Assigned by the Graduate School to doctoral exams taking place in any graduate program, grad faculty reps are full voting members of each examination committee. More
The Graduate Council is the principal advisory body of the Graduate School and participates in the development of rules, policies, and standards pertaining to graduate programs, graduate associates, and graduate fellowships. More
