Research and Graduate Education Committee


2014-2015 Roster


Current Issues for Review

  1. Enrollment data, focusing on:
    1. Diversity trends,
    2. International recruitment statistics, and
    3. Selectivity data
  2. Question: what should be the responsibility of individual programs/colleges, and what should the Graduate School do?

  3. Indicators of program quality. Criteria for discussion would include:
    1. Selectivity as an indicator of competitiveness
    2. GRE/GPA of incoming students
    3. Progress on enrollment priorities (diversity, international.)
    4. Time to degree
    5. Graduate student publications/conferences/creative projects while at UK
    6. Job placement immediately upon graduation
    7. External rankings

Questions: 1) To what extent should fellowship allocations, TA/RA/GA lines, and other funding be tied to program quality? 2) What program quality indicators can be applied across different programs and are true indicators of program quality?
