Graduate Council

Committee Charge:  The Graduate Council is delegated to make policy for graduate education at UCLA, except for the M.D., J.D., LL. M., S.J.D. and D.D.S degrees. It recommends to the Legislative Assembly graduate programs leading to new degrees, as well as disestablishment or consolidation of existing degrees. It periodically reviews and evaluates all graduate programs of study (in conjunction with Undergraduate Council's review of the related undergraduate program, where appropriate). It also recommends to the systemwide Coordinating Committee on Graduate Affairs proposals for new graduate programs leading to existing degrees and new programs leading to graduate level certificates.

Membership:  The Council consists of twenty faculty members appointed by the Committee on Committees and confirmed by the Legislative Assembly for up to 3 years. Members are selected to give proper representation to the departments, colleges, professional schools, and interdepartmental programs that offer graduate curricula. The Chair is appointed by the Committee on Committees and confirmed by the Legislative Assembly. The Dean of the Graduate Division serves as an ex officio member. Four graduate student representatives are appointed by the Graduate Student Association.
