Graduate School Council

The University of Washington’s Graduate School Council is an elected body that advises the dean of the Graduate School on graduate education policies, related issues, and recommendations from program reviews. The Council acts on behalf of Graduate Faculty and has legislative authority for all matters pertaining to graduate education requiring a vote of elected representatives. The Council’s recommendations form the basis for all new graduate degree authorizations by the Board of Regents.

Staff support for the Council resides in the Office of Academic Affairs and Planning.
