Graduate Faculty Membership

There are four levels of graduate faculty membership or status:  (1) Doctoral Graduate Faculty, (2) Graduate Faculty, (3) Associate Graduate Faculty, and (4) Graduate Instructor.  All faculty members, whether full time, part time, adjunct, or other, who desire to serve on graduate committees, direct graduate research, or teach graduate courses at the 500 level or higher must apply for one of the four graduate faculty membership levels.  The academic unit dean may approve a faculty member to teach one graduate course while his or her application is in process of being considered, but this faculty member may not teach graduate level courses in subsequent semesters until he or she has been approved for one of the graduate faculty membership levels described at the link below.
