Graduate Faculty Executive Committee (GFEC)

The Graduate Faculty Executive Committee (GFEC) exercises the powers of the graduate faculty with respect to establishing, reviewing and modifying graduate degree programs, named options, doctoral minors, graduate/professional certificates, and capstone certificates.

The GFEC is also responsible for:

  • setting standards for admission and degree requirements;
  • evaluating and recommending actions on student appeals;
  • engaging in strategic planning discussions, such as graduate student recruitment, professional development, and learning outcomes;
  • focus on other relevant graduate education policy concerns.

For a description of GFEC-related processes, or for assistance in planning a graduate program approval or review, please see GFEC Member Resources.

Membership selection, functions and procedures of the GFEC are defined by FPP 3.07.
