Physics Department Committees
The Physics Department would like for graduate students to play a more integral role in the decision making processes which are taking place in our department at varying levels. Nominees for graduate student positions on the following two committees are currently being sought after.
The Graduate Curriculum and Affairs Committee, which decides on course proposals, course changes, and the addition or removal of courses in our program. It also deliberates on student petitions and other academic or disciplinary issues. This committee meets on demand, probably less than once a month.
The Chair’s Advisory Board, which comprises the Department chair, the associate chairs, five elected faculty members, and a senior staff member. It will probably meet once or twice per semester to advise Dr. Mucciolo on administrative matters.
Participating in these committees will allow for ideas and concerns students have to be more directly addressed by the department. If you’re interested in joining, please follow this link to a survey where you’ll be asked for a short description of your motivation for wanting to join said committee.
