of their credentials and recommendation by their colleagues. The University maintains

Research Co-Mentor, (5) Affiliate, and (6) Adjunct Teaching.
Only Full graduate faculty members may chair doctoral committees. Adjunct Research
Co-Mentor members may serve as co-chair of a master's or doctoral committee. Full
or Associate graduate faculty may chair master's committees. Only one adjunct or affiliate
graduate faculty member may serve as a voting member on any master's or doctoral committee.
Teaching adjunct members may not serve on graduate committees.
