The principal responsibilities of the Grad Advising & Admissions Committee are:

  • To establish student admissions criteria, to be approved by the Executive Committee, and review them for appropriate modifications.
  • To review, and recommend for approval to the Head Graduate Adviser, graduate student applications to the DE.
  • To collaborate with the affiliated Ph.D. programs in the recruitment of graduate students.
  • To establish and review the DE’s mechanisms for advising students in adherence to standards of scholarship for the DE from pre-advancement until completion of DE requirements in the program, and to assess the quality of the program’s student advising.
  • To assist the Head Graduate Adviser in the following duties of that position:
    • To review and approve individual student course selections and make appropriate recommendations before approval.
    • To review student Qualifying Examination and Dissertation Committees to ensure that the DE is represented by a core faculty member for nomination to the Dean of the Graduate Division for approval.
    • To review and approve any variations from the DE standard Curriculum in individual student cases
