The Graduate School Manual - Monitoring/Modifying Guidelines

Monitoring/Modification of Guidelines on Graduate Student Rights and Responsibilities

Monitoring of Guidelines

The Dean of the Graduate School will ensure that the guidelines are put into effect in a timely manner and that they are followed by departments and programs.


Modification of Guidelines

Recognizing that circumstances may require changes in these guidelines to achieve their objectives more effectively, the Graduate Council instructs the Academic Standards Committee to review proposals for changes in consultation with the Graduate Student Organization and other relevant parties. Graduate students, faculty, Deans, the Dean of the Graduate School, the provost and the president may submit proposals for the modification of guidelines in effect to the committee for consideration during the academic year. The committee's recommendations will be submitted to the Graduate Council and the Dean of the Graduate School for review and action.
