Advisory Committee


  • Students must select one (1) GC faculty members from the Global Change Faculty to represent the GC Minor on their Ph.D. comprehensive examination and final dissertation defense advisory committees.  (updated policy as of October 2013)
  • The GC faculty committee member should be identified early in the student's program, so he or she can serve as resources during the student's studies.
  • The Global Change faculty member representing the GC minor must reside in a home department that is different from the student’s major department.
  •  Note that the faculty composition of the Ph.D. comprehensive examination committee and the dissertation committee may differ, but in each case, one GC faculty member is required on the committee.
