College of Education and Human Services Criteria for Graduate Faculty

Graduate faculty teach graduate courses (courses at the 5000 level or above), supervise and serve on examining committees for master's degree students, serve as members of doctoral research committees, and vote on all matters presented to the Graduate Faculty.


A graduate faculty member must:

  1. Hold the minimum rank of assistant professor at the University of North Florida;
  2. Hold the terminal degree, or its equivalent, normally accepted for academic appointment in the discipline;
  3. Be tenured or tenure earning;
  4. Be involved in graduate teaching and/or research;
  5. Have demonstrated clear evidence of scholarly activity; and
  6. Be recommended by the faculty of the academic program, the Dean of the College of Education and Human Services, and approved by the Graduate Council.

Courtesy appointments to the Graduate Faculty may be recommended on an ad hoc basis by the academic unit to the Dean. The Dean will request approval of the Graduate Council for such appointments, prior to the appointment.
