University Graduate Committee meetings
UGC meetings are held monthly during the fall and spring
semesters—meetings during the months of December and May are optional,
depending on workload. All UGC meetings are open to the public.
The University Graduate Committee is made up of one
faculty member from each academic unit with a graduate degree program, as well as one graduate student representative. The committee is chaired by a faculty member elected by the
