Graduate Student Participation. There normally will be one graduate student member on the Curriculum Committee and the Recruiting and Admissions Committee (a.k.a. Grad Studies Committee). The GSA usually nominates and elects representatives to committees during the fall. A graduate student representative, usually the GSA vice-president, is encouraged to attend departmental meetings, as a non-voting representative.
Students will be asked by the departmental chairperson or the Promotion and Tenure Executive committee to be involved in promotion and tenure matters, although a graduate student representative will not serve on the tenure committee.
