About the Graduate Program Committee

The University Graduate Program Committee (GPC) reviews and recommends to the Provost the approval of proposals from colleges, schools, and portal campuses with respect to new graduate programs granting master's and doctoral degrees. The Committee evaluates all master’s and doctoral program proposals to ensure that the University’s colleges, schools, and portal campuses with graduate components maintain comparable standards of work for the degrees. It ensures that there has been consultation with the relevant colleges, schools, and/or portal campuses, and that there is minimal curricular overlap between or among the units. The Committee also may formulate recommendations to the Provost on other matters that relate to graduate education in the University. The Committee does not review new program concentrations. However, they must be submitted to New York State Education Department via the Office of Academic Program Review and Assessment (OAPRA). The committee is advisory to the Provost and is co-chaired by Elise Cappella, Vice Provost for University-wide Initiatives and Graduate Education, and Lynne Kiorpes, GSAS Dean.
