PURPOSE AND MISSION OF THE GRADUATE BOARD

According to the Faculty Handbook, Part I, Section B-5, as well as Article XVII of the Constitution of the Academic Senate of The Catholic University of America, "There shall be a Graduate Board to exercise general supervision over all matters delegated to it by the Academic Senate relating to graduate study; for example, standards of admission, requirements for degrees, and programs of study, and to report to the Senate recommendations on matters relating to graduate policy.

Members are appointed by the Senate upon joint recommendation of the Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies and the Dean of the School concerned. Each School involved with Graduate Studies shall be represented on this Board by a number of members equal to its number of Faculty delegates in the Senate. The terms of membership shall coincide with those of the delegates to the Senate. Deans shall be eligible for membership on the Graduate Board."

The Vice Provost and Dean of Graduate Studies chairs this committee, ex officio, and both the Director of Graduate Admissions and the President of the Graduate Student Association serve on this committee as non-voting ex officio members.
