The University of North Carolina Graduate Council (UNC GC) facilitates reviews and makes recommendations regarding proposals to plan and establish new masters, doctoral, and first professional degree programs. The UNC GC also addresses University-wide issues of graduate education.
The UNC GC voting members include one representative from each of UNC’s sixteen public universities. For universities with a Graduate School, the Graduate Dean serves as the UNC GC representative. Universities without a Graduate School must identify an appropriate representative with analogous functional responsibilities in graduate education and/or academic planning. UNC General Administration maintains a current list of UNC GC members.
