Section XV

Graduate Faculty membership

The Graduate Faculty are those members of the general faculty approved to conduct graduate education at Ohio State. Appointment to the general faculty must precede appointment to the Graduate Faculty and is a condition of it. A faculty appointment, however, does not in itself confer Graduate Faculty membership.


Graduate Faculty play a significant role in the graduate student’s academic experience, and collaboration between student and committee members is an integral component of the degree completion process.  The Graduate School recognizes that these important relationships develop over time and, when faculty leave the university either through resignation or retirement, there remains a responsibility to advise the student through the dissertation and to completion of the degree.
