The Graduate Council submits recommendations concerning initiation or revision of graduate courses and programs through the University Senate to the Provost. The Council is composed of three graduate faculty members and one student member from each of the six academic colleges and the Dean of the Graduate School (non-voting member) for a total of twenty-five members. Faculty members are elected annually by the graduate faculty in each college.
