Who can serve on Graduate Committee Faculty?

Members of the Graduate Committee Faculty are selected from qualified individuals of the faculty and professional staff of Texas A&M University; from employees of Texas A&M University System agencies such as Texas A&M AgriLife Extension, TEES, TTI; from employees of affiliated research organizations (such as the USDA) located near Texas A&M campus sites, and from affiliated hospitals and clinical organizations.

Membership on the Graduate Committee Faculty is maintained only by participating in graduate programs by directing or administering graduate work, doing research and publishing, or other direct and substantial contributions to the graduate programs of the University, such as by service on a Graduate Instruction Committee or by administrative assignments in graduate education. 

Nomination for membership in the Graduate Committee Faculty is always initiated by the head of the appropriate academic department, intercollegiate faculty, or dean (under special circumstances) at Texas A&M University. 

The Graduate Committee Faculty Guidelines outline all required qualifications for nominees at each membership level.
