Graduate Council Calendar and Meeting Minutes
Co-Chairs: Kris Chesky, Faculty Chair
Victor Prybutok, Administrative Co-Chair
Composition: The Graduate Council consists of voting and non-voting members. The voting members are: eight graduate status faculty members, one elected from each of the eight voting groups of the Faculty Senate and four graduate status faculty members appointed at-large by the Faculty Senate (with the assistance of the Executive Committee and the Committee on Committees.) Effort will be made so that the appointed at-large members represent disciplines not already represented by the elected members. These twelve faculty members are the only voting members on the Graduate Council. Voting members elect a faculty chair from amongst themselves for a one year term at the beginning of each academic year.
Non-voting members are: two graduate students selected by the Graduate Student Council, the vice provost of the Toulouse Graduate School (who serves as this Council’s co-chair ex officio), the associate dean of the Toulouse Graduate School, the registrar, and deans or their representatives from each of the colleges, schools, and library.
Terms: Faculty members shall serve three-year terms with a second three-year term available. Student members shall serve one-year terms. Other members shall serve during the period they hold their respective offices. Annual terms are from September 1 to August 31.
