Charge
Identify best practices for creating and maintaining a consistent culture of excellence with regards to the graduate student experience across the College of Engineering, for professional Master’s students, MS and PhD students. Among the questions to consider: What formal and informal education and training should we provide to all graduate students in the College of Engineering, if any? What should be the qualifications of PhD students in order to teach in our undergraduate courses? How should they be trained and/or mentored? What should be the responsibilities of supervisors and supervising committees regarding grant writing, sending them to conferences, etc.? How can we build and/or strengthen a College level graduate community? 

Deliverables:
Develop proposals for improving graduate student development to be enacted at the graduate program level and at the College level.
