How to approve an outside member for your committee


To get someone appointed with temporary graduate faculty status we need to convince the Graduate School of their expertise in the topic you are investigating.  They also need to see relevant academic qualifications and professional experience.


Accordingly, you need to detail (i) what you are researching and (ii) how the outside member proposed can contribute given their record of research.  We also need their most current vita.


Please answer (i) and (ii) in a brief paragraph and email to with the vita to me, Stephen Tomlinson. 

I will then write to the Graduate Dean on your behalf.

You should verify their approval by monitoring the Temporary Graduate Faculty list.
Allow 3 weeks to process!
