The Graduate Council reviews, coordinates, and serves as an advocate for graduate education at Ohio University. The Council has both advisory and policy-recommending responsibilities for graduate education. They initiate, review, and recommend University-wide policy for graduate education.
The Graduate Council recommends to the University Curriculum Council the initiation, implementation, and elimination of graduate programs and degrees at Ohio University. Other recommendations by the Council go through the Provost to the President for final approval.
The composition of the Graduate Council represents both those departments granting Ph.D. degrees and those departments offering only Master's degrees.
