Area-specific advisory committee membership PHD NACS

The advisory committee consists of a minimum of three graduate faculty members, and it is recommended that one be from outside of the student’s home department. This committee should be formed no later than the 10th week of the student’s 2nd semester.

After the committee is formed, it is recommended that the student, their Advisor, and the two additional committee members meet to discuss the expectations for that particular committee (e.g., does the committee plan to have regular meetings, when does the student expect to have a proposal meeting, etc.)
