Graduate Studies

The departmental chair/head may recommend the approval of a lecturer for a graduate level course. Such approval is needed for a staff member who does not qualify as a graduate member or graduate associate, but

  • holds the terminal degree normally accepted for employment in the discipline; or
  • has achieved some extraordinary accomplishments as determined by the Graduate Committee of the nominating department.

The lecturer appointment is only valid for the semester for which it was approved. The Request for Approval of Graduate Lecturer form should be submitted with the proposed lecturer’s vita to Graduate Studies.
