A Graduate School Policy Review Committee has been formed to review and update existing graduate education policies that are currently found in a variety of formats, including the Graduate School catalog and constitution. As outlined in its charge letter from Cathrine Wambach, chair of the University Senate Committee on Educational Policy (SCEP), the group's goal is to present policies to the Senate at the end of spring semester 2011.
Associate professor Nita Krevans is chairing the committee, which includes several other faculty members and staff representatives from the Provost's office, University Policy Office, Graduate School, Council of Graduate Students, and Academic Support Resources.
The committee began meeting in July, assembling a list of topics that should be considered while reviewing existing policy content, as well as identifying where new policies might need to be developed. As with the review of undergraduate educational policies, a significant effort will be made to get feedback on the proposed policies.
