Graduate Affairs Committee

The Graduate Affairs Committee (GAC) is responsible for reviewing program and course proposals and revisions prior to submission to the UMaine Graduate Board. It shall oversee graduate policies and procedures, as well as other matters that cross program and school boundaries, such as doctoral programs and research/foundation courses. Each graduate program will select one representative to serve on the GAC. It is highly recommended that graduate programs select their program coordinators for this responsibility. Faculty members must have full graduate faculty status. The committee will be chaired by the Associate Dean of Graduate Studies.
