Committee on Graduate Education

The Committee on Graduate Education is comprised of five regular faculty members, at least three of whom are also members of the Graduate Faculty. The Dean of the Graduate School, the Registrar, the Provost, and the Associate Vice President for Institutional Effectiveness and Strategic Planning, or their designees, are non-voting ex-officio members.

The committee reviews and creates recommendations concerning graduate education policy, including faculty development programs related to graduate education. The committee reviews proposed changes in graduate programs and courses and, via the Graduate Council, forwards approvals to the Faculty Senate. The committee is responsible for providing faculty review for credit-bearing graduate level education programing not applicable to any College of Charleston graduate degree or certificate (such as non-catalog offerings of the Office of Professional Development in Education). The committee also reviews and makes recommendations concerning proposals for the termination of graduate programs brought to the committee by the Provost.
