Nutritional Sciences - Committee Chair Policy
Nutritional Sciences MS/MPH students may select a committee chair from the Nutritional Sciences Program Core Faculty, Affiliate Faculty, or any UW faculty with Graduate Faculty Status (GFS, granted by the Graduate School). If a non-nutrition faculty member is the chair, at least one nutrition core faculty member must serve on the committee.
Doctoral students may select a committe chair from the same pool, but if a non-nutrition core faculty member is chair (research), a nutrition core faculty member must serve as co-chair (primarily for academic advising).
For all committees, one-half of the composition (incuding chair/co-chairs) must have Graduate Faculty Status.
