Graduate Council

The Graduate Council acts on behalf of the Graduate Faculty on routine matters of policy interpretation, curriculum and course review, and review of applications for Graduate Faculty status. The operating procedures of the Graduate Council are defined by the Bylaws of the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences Graduate School.

The Graduate Council consists of a voting faculty representative from each of the graduate programs.  Representatives are elected for non-consecutive, four-year terms.  Members of the Graduate Council elect a chair from their membership for a two year term.

Meetings are scheduled once a month, generally on the third Thursday unless members are notified otherwise by the Graduate School office.
