The Wayne State University Graduate Council is the governing body of the University’s Graduate School. It formulates policies concerning graduate education, sets admission standards for graduate programs. In addition it manages graduate faculty appointments, evaluates applications to all graduate programs, and awards all Ph.D. degrees, select master’s degrees, and interdisciplinary graduate certificates at Wayne State University.
The Wayne State University Graduate Council is composed of members elected from the regular graduate faculty of each of the various schools and colleges of the University, at least one graduate student member, the Dean of the Graduate School, and members of the graduate faculty appointed by the Dean of the Graduate School. The Council meets monthly during the academic year, and all meetings are open to the University community.
This collection documents the development of Wayne State University's Graduate School, one of the largest graduate schools in the nation. The University’s professional programs were established early in the history of the University and were unified within the newly-created Graduate School in 1933. The records of this collection begin in 1934 with the Wayne University Graduate Council Minutes and finish with records from 1981 in what has become the Wayne State University Graduate Council.
