Applying for Special Graduate Faculty Status
All members of the Project of Practice Committee must hold graduate faculty status at UTC and must be approved by the Project Chair and Program Director/Advisor. If a proposed committee member does not currently hold graduate faculty status at UTC, s/he will need to apply for “Special” graduate faculty status by submitting the following items:
Graduate Faculty Application (with digital signature)
Complete copy of CV (or resume)
The Project Chair will submit the name and email address of the proposed committee member to the Program Office via email ([email protected]). The Program Office will contact the proposed committee member with instructions regarding the graduate faculty application process. UTC graduate programs have adopted an electronic filing and approval process; therefore, hard copy application materials submitted by U.S. Postal Service or FAX cannot be accepted. The applicant's complete CV/resume and digitally signed Graduate Faculty Application should be emailed to the Program Office ([email protected]) for approval and submission to the Graduate School. Instructions for Digital Signature are available upon request.
Filing the Project of Practice Committee Appointment Form
Once the candidate and the Project Chair have agreed to the members of the Project of Practice Committee, the Project Chair will notify the Program Office ([email protected]) to circulate the Graduate Committee Appointment Form to the candidate and committee members for digital signatures. Once the candidate and committee members have digitally signed the form, it will be submitted to the Program Director/Advisor for approval and submission to the Graduate School.
