Nomination & Appointment of Graduate Chairs

Graduate chairs serve as the liaison between the Office of Graduate Education and graduate programs. They are nominated by their department chair, approved by their college/school Dean and then appointed by the Graduate Dean.

The department chair submits a memo, via college/school Dean, to the Dean of Graduate Education, along with a copy of the nominee's curriculum vitae.  The memo should include the nomination and a statement of agreement by the graduate faculty.
