Faculty search committee representative

This is a reference page for Graduate student information.

THIS PAGE IS NOT OFFICIAL DEPARTMENTAL POLICY. IT MERELY REPRESENTS THE PEER-ADVICE PROVIDED BY FELLOW STUDENTS AND FACULTY.

What the handbook says

During years in which a faculty search is conducted, a graduate student representative to the search committee should be selected by the students in consultation with the Department Chair and the Chair of the Search Committee. He/she will meet with the Search Committee at their invitation. The representative’s principal role will be to organize student interaction with short-listed candidates during their visits, and to communicate student evaluations of the candidates to the Search Committee and the Faculty.

Additional information

Lia says: Another reference to a student selected representative. Is this point worth emphasizing? Too my knowledge, there have been no search committees formed lately.
