Graduate Faculty Status is a prestigious position reserved for those who are highly engaged in creative, academic, and research activity as assessed by their department/school, College Dean, and Graduate Dean. It affords qualified individuals the privilege to teach, mentor, and advise graduate students as a member of the UNLV Graduate Faculty. You must obtain Graduate Faculty Status to be eligible to teach graduate courses, mentor/advise students, and serve on Graduate Advisory Committees (GACs).
As a member of the Graduate Faculty, you will receive periodic emails and a monthly newsletter from the Graduate College to keep you abreast of new policies/processes, best practices, upcoming events, and other important information. Graduate faculty members are responsible for reading these messages to stay in the loop on issues impacting the graduate community.
