Graduate Board:

The Academic Senate has delegated to the Graduate Board general supervision over specific matters relating to grad­uate study, for example, standards of admission, programs of study, and requirements for degrees. The Graduate Board reports to the Academic Senate its recommendations on these matters.

The Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies is the Chairman ex officio. Members are appointed by the Academic Senate upon the joint recommendation of the Chairman of the Graduate Board and the Dean of the School from which the appointment is made. Each School is represented on the Graduate Board by a number of members equal to the number of its faculty delegates in the Academic Senate. Deans are eligible for member­ship on the Graduate Board. The terms of office coincide with those of the delegates to the Academic Senate.
