The Graduate Council

The Graduate Council shall develop and implement standing and ad hoc task forces to assist officers in carrying out their responsibilities. The committees shall be composed of members of the Graduate Council. Student members must be included on student grievance committees and issues groups that deal directly with student academic matters. Ad hoc task forces can be composed of non-Graduate Council members (up to 50%) because of the specific (and perhaps technical) job at hand. The Graduate Council Chairperson shall appoint committees and ad hoc task forces and their respective chairs in consultation with the Council. Committees and task forces shall cease to exist when the job is recognized as having been completed, or the Council terminates the assignment.
