Graduate College Members-at-Large

A regular faculty member whose appointment is in an academic unit that does not offer graduate programs is eligible to request RM status in the Graduate Faculty as a Graduate College member-at-large. Member-at-large status is subject to the review and approval of the Graduate Council and Graduate College dean. Members-at-large are typically appointed for a maximum of five years at a time.

Requests for member-at-large status should be submitted by email to spowers@ou.edu and include: a.) the name and title of the faculty member, b.) the faculty member’s academic unit, c.) the RM level requested, d.) an up-to-date copy of the faculty member’s curriculum vita, and e.) a justification for the request (e.g. “to serve as Graduate College Representative on committees in the Department of History,” “to chair doctoral committees in the School of Meteorology,” etc.). Requests will be routed to the Graduate College dean and Graduate Council for review. Faculty who have requested member-at-large status will be notified of the outcome via email.
