Graduate Council Updates


04/07/2018

Graduate Council is a body of the faculty in which matters of concern to graduate education may be discussed and the mission of graduate education at St. Ambrose fulfilled.

Graduate Council also serves in an advisory capacity on academic issues related to graduate education and as a primary voice for graduate faculty.

The voting members of Graduate Council are comprised of the graduate program directors and elected representatives from the overall faculty. The College Deans, the Chief Academic Officer, the Vice President of Enrollment Management, Manager of Graduate Admissions, and the President of GSGA are all non-voting members of Graduate Council.

Within Graduate Council, an Executive Committee meets monthly to help move forward the initiatives of Graduate Council. This is a five-member group comprised of graduate faculty from all three colleges.

During the 2017-2018 academic year, Graduate Council has set the following priorities.

Initiative 1 - Defining Scholarship and Workload for Graduate Faculty
Initiative 2 - Defining What Graduate Education Means at St. Ambrose University
Initiative 3 - Strengthen the Culture of Graduate Education
Initiative 4 - Support the Marketing of Graduate Programs

In early 2018, we developed a strategic plan to address each initiative. We are making great progress in many of these areas and will be continuing our work to address each initiative. If you are interested in seeing our plan, contact Mike Puthoff.
