Ph.D. Committee Meetings

PhD Committee

The PhD Committee is responsible for oversight and design of the PhD Program. In collaboration with the Graduate Program Administrator and the Office of Academic Services, the Committee handles all administrative and procedural issues related to each student from admittance to graduation. The Committee coordinates the PhD Program’s activities with other graduate programs and administrative bodies in JSIS and the UW. The Committee also undertakes active assessment of the PhD Program and its students and can make adjustments to procedures, curriculum, and requirements to improve the quality of the program. The Committee will regularly consult with the JSIS faculty and Director of JSIS.

The voting members of the PhD Committee include a Chair (who is the Director of the PhD Program), a Graduate Program Coordinator, and typically six other members of the JSIS faculty. The Director of the Jackson School, the Director of Academic Services, and the Graduate Program Administrator also sit on the PhD Committee. The Committee aims to be representative of a range of disciplines, regional areas of expertise, faculty rank, and gender.

Administrative Roles

Director of the PhD Program

The Director serves as the Chair of the PhD Committee, usually serves as the Chair of the PhD Admissions Committee, and is responsible for overall direction of the PhD program. This includes management of routine program activities as well as assessment and adjustment to the program, in collaboration with the PhD Committee. The Director also works to ensure effective communication with the students and faculty. The Director of the PhD Program is appointed by the Director of JSIS and usually serves for a term of three years.

Graduate Program Coordinator (GPC)

The GPC is responsible for advising and assisting students on PhD Program matters. This advising capacity is in addition to the administrative advising that students receive from the GPA and the academic advising they receive from their Faculty Advisors and academic Committees. The GPC can make decisions regarding deviations from the typical schedule or requirements of the program, on a case-by-case basis. In collaboration with the GPA, the GPC is also responsible for monitoring student progress and reporting unsatisfactory progress or other student problems to The Graduate School. The GPC serves on the PhD Committee and usually the PhD Admissions Committee. They are appointed by the Director of JSIS and the Director of the PhD Program and usually serve for a term of three years.

Graduate Program Administrator (GPA)

The GPA is responsible for advising and assisting students on administrative matters related to the PhD Program. As the first point of contact for PhD students, the GPA directs students to the appropriate resources or advisors for matters that require additional decision-making on nonadministrative matters. The GPA is responsible for a variety of administrative tasks, including but not limited to managing the general exams, prospectus and dissertation defenses, the Capstone Workshop, and orientation.

PhD Committee Members

Committee members are responsible for participating in regular committee meetings and undertaking related tasks, upon request of the committee and the PhD Program Director. Faculty members of the PhD Committee usually serve for a term of three years and are appointed by the Director of the PhD Program and the Director of JSIS.

Curriculum Committee Meetings

The JSIS Curriculum Committee (JSIS-CC) is an advisory body to the faculty and the leadership of JSIS. Members will be recruited by the Chair of the JSIS-CC, who is one of the Associate Directors of JSIS. JSIS-CC consists of the Chair and four members. Members serve for two academic years. Each academic year, two members are appointed for a two-year period and two members rotate off. The Director of JSIS, the Director of OAS and the JSIS Associate Directors are ex officio members of JSIS-CC. Composition of the JSIS-CC should reflect different area study programs and centers within the school.

The mission of the JSIS-CC is oversight of the curricula in JSIS. Tasks include initiating, coordinating, and tracking curriculum development in JSIS degree programs, reviewing curricular programs and program changes, initiating discussion on curricular synergies between programs and developing new curricular initiatives. JSIS-CC assesses and makes recommendations that enhance the learning experience of students and relate teaching and learning to student recruitment and career opportunities. The CC seeks to support faculty teaching efforts so as to achieve student learning goals as well as a balanced teaching load across programs and undergraduate/graduate courses.

In carrying out its duties, the JSIS-CC is committed to considering School-wide, as well as program-specific, implications. At the start of the academic year, the JSIS-CC will prioritize agenda items in coordination with the Director and faculty and will post these items on the intranet. Throughout the academic year, JSIS-CC will put forward actionable items to the Director, the faculty at large and/or to specific programs. Since the routine agenda and workload of the JSIS-CC is large, the committee can invite colleagues to join temporary ad-hoc faculty subcommittees for specific tasks. JSIS-CC will provide a clearly defined scope and timeline of work for such ad-hoc committees. Ad hoc committees will prepare a statement and policy recommendation to the JSIS-CC as a culmination of their work.

As part of its brief, JSIS-CC will consult with all relevant stakeholders, including full-time and part-time faculty, staff, the JSIS Director, and students. JSIS-CC aims to be representative of a range of disciplines, regional areas of expertise, faculty rank, and gender. The committee will have regular meetings at least once a quarter. Its agenda will be available to faculty, staff, and any authorized student representative on the JSIS intranet.
