Faculty Advisors

All graduate students must select a committee chair. (Committee chair is the official name for your faculty advisor.) Students who choose the applied project or thesis option for their culminating project must also select one (1) additional committee member. Students that choose the portfolio option only need a committee chair. The graduate student must contact the desired faculty member to check availability for serving on their committee prior to listing the faculty on the iPOS. The committee chair will help the graduate student select the appropriate courses to list on their iPOS. It is the responsibility of the graduate student to stay in contact with the committee chair.

Selecting Your Graduate Committee Chair

Any of the four (4) faculty members below can serve as the committee chair.

  • Laurie Ralston, EdD. (Must be chair for thesis projects)
