Of the 12 teaching faculty, 6 shall be from the College of Arts and Sciences representing the Humanities (2), the Social Sciences (2), and the Natural Sciences (2), but no two shall be from the same CAS department; 1 from each of the professional schools/colleges which include the School of Architecture and Allied Arts, the Lundquist College of Business, the College of Education, the School of Journalism and Communication, the School of Music, and 1 at large representative from any of the professional schools/colleges.
The elected faculty members of the Graduate Council come from departments that have graduate major programs leading to the graduate degree and are conducted under the jurisdiction of the Graduate School. One student must be from a program leading to a master's degree and one must be from a graduate program leading to a doctoral degree. Faculty members are elected for 3-year terms. The Vice Provost and Dean of the Graduate School are empowered to appoint other ex-officio, non-voting members to represent important constituencies of graduate students and faculty as needed.
