Self-Supporting Graduate Professional Degree Programs (SSGPDP) Ad Hoc Advisory Committee

COMMITTEE CHARGE

The SSGPDP Ad Hoc Advisory Committee will actively engage with proposing units in supporting the development of proposals for Self-Supporting Graduate Professional Degree Programs (SSGPDPs) at UCLA.  In particular, the SSGPDP Ad Hoc Advisory Committee will guide proposing units on how to fulfill all requirements associated with UCLA’s SSGPDP guidelines.  They will also inform the Graduate Council whether proposals satisfy the guidelines, and will support the Graduate Council in the periodical review and audits of existing and new SSGPDPs. 

The benefits of this ad hoc committee will extend beyond the development of new SSGPDPs; the SSGPDP Ad Hoc Advisory Committee will also champion UCLA’s mission to promote academic quality, diversity, and access to graduate education.  The SSGPDP Ad Hoc Advisory Committee, in coordination with the Graduate Division, will also be involved in the implementation of a new grant program that will support graduate students from across campus who represent diversity.

  • The SSGPDP Ad Hoc Advisory Committee consists of a Chair and at least six other members appointed by the Chair of the Graduate Council, in consultation with the Executive Vice Chancellor and Provost.
