The Graduate Council includes one representative from each of the eight colleges/schools, a representative from the Faculty Senate, a representative from the library and the USUSA graduate senator and graduate director, all of whom are voting members. The council is chaired by Dr. Richard Inouye, Vice Provost of Graduate Studies. An Associate Vice President for Research serves as a non-voting member on the council.
The Graduate Council sends one member as a representative to the Curriculum Committee and one to the Educational Policies Committee.
All college faculty representatives serve four-year terms with two new members elected each year. The Faculty Senate representative is nominated by the Faculty Senate for a two-year term. The graduate students are appointed for one-year terms by the Graduate Student Senate.
The Graduate Council meets monthly during the academic year, typically on the second Wednesday of each month. All meetings will be held virtually until conditions allow us to meet face-to-face.
Agenda items are due by 5 p.m. on the dates listed below. Meeting agendas are distributed before each meeting.
If you are unable to attend a meeting, please contact Richard Inouye and provide the name of who will substitute for you.
