The Graduate Faculty Council (GFC) represents all graduate faculty across the Indiana University system. It is both an advisory and legislative board on matters of graduate education, and reports to the Dean of the University Graduate School (UGS).
This body provides instruction and guidance on matters of the graduate curriculum, admission standards, degree conferral and, in general, oversight of the academic quality and integrity of graduate programs. The GFC also advises the dean with respect to the standards of graduate work at IU and in awarding UGS fellowships and grants-in-aid.
