Graduate School Academic Planning Council (GSAPC) - About the Committee
The GSAPC advises the Dean on policy and budgetary planning and annually proposes a Research Assistant rate for the next school year to the Dean.
The Graduate Faculty Executive Committee selects a subcommittee
of five faculty from among its elected members to serve, together with
the dean, as the academic planning council of the Graduate School. One
of the elected members shall be chosen from each faculty division and
the fifth elected member shall be chosen at-large. The dean may invite
associate deans or others to attend meetings of the academic planning
council as advisors. The academic planning council advises the dean on
policy and budgetary planning and presents faculty views and opinions to
the dean. It also has the responsibility of assisting the graduate
faculty in understanding budget and policy decisions and constraints.
Subjects on which the dean shall share information and
consult with the academic planning council include, but are not limited
Program review and the future development or contraction of graduate programs.
Allocation of flexible resources to various uses, such
as fellowships, support of individual investigators, matching funds for
facilities grants, funding for new faculty, and awards.
Policies and budget decisions for service facilities operated by the Graduate School.
Policies and budget decisions relating to research centers administered by the Graduate School.
Appointments of committees of the Graduate School. The
council shall report regularly to the Graduate Faculty Executive
Committee, and distribute a written report to the graduate faculty at
least once each year.
