2016-17 Academic Catalog

Graduate Faculty

Within Principles of Accreditation: Foundations for Quality Enhancement, the Southern Association of Colleges and Schools’ Commission on Colleges, the following statement concerning faculty appears.          

The institution employs competent faculty members qualified to accomplish the mission and goals of the institution.  When determining acceptable qualifications of its faculty, an institution gives primary consideration to the highest earned degree in the discipline.  The institution also considers competence, effectiveness, and capacity, including, as appropriate, undergraduate and graduate degrees, related work experiences in the field, professional licensure and certifications, honors and awards, continuous documented excellence in teaching, or other demonstrated competencies and achievements that contribute to effective teaching and student learning outcomes.  For all cases, the institution is responsible for justifying and documenting the qualifications of its faculty.  (Comprehensive Standard 3.7.1, December 2008) 

With the approval of the dean of the college, each department with graduate programs will determine procedures for handling recommendations or appeals concerning Graduate Faculty appointments, reappointments, or changes in level of membership status.  The department and/or the college criteria and procedures must be consistent with the qualifications and responsibilities outlined below but may be more restrictive. 

Graduate Faculty members are listed in the Catalog of the Graduate School by college/department.

Appointment/Reappointment/Change of Level

Forms for appointments and reappointments are available at the Office of the Graduate School website (www.grad.msstate.edu). All Graduate Faculty appointments (Level 1, Level 2, and Associate Level) and participant appointments for graduate studies must be on record with the Graduate School. The Dean of the Graduate School approves the appointments and can require review of an appointment by a committee of the Graduate Faculty of the appointing department.

Procedures for Initial Appointment

  1. The initial appointment of individuals to the Graduate Faculty and the determination of Graduate Faculty membership level (Level 1, Level 2, and Associate) and of individuals to the participant appointment must be in accordance with the corresponding criteria and approved by the academic dean based upon recommendation from the department head and approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
  2. University administrators (individuals holding the rank of Assistant Dean or higher) seeking initial appointment to the Graduate Faculty must be held to the qualifications outlined above, but their applications go directly to the Dean of the Graduate School who makes a recommendation to the Provost.  These appointments are approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
  3. Recommendations for initial appointments to the Graduate Faculty, determination of membership levels, and participant appointments may be made at any time during the calendar year.  It is the responsibility of the department head, dean, and applicant to provide documentation to support an applicant’s qualifications for appointment.
  4. The applicant may withdraw the request for appointment at any time.

Procedures for Reappointment or Change in Level of Membership

  1. The Office of the Graduate School will request department heads to submit an updated list of current Graduate Faculty members with corresponding membership levels (Level 1, Level 2, or Associate Level) in early spring for publication in the annual Catalog of the Graduate School.  The OGS will notify academic deans of faculty members or participants whose graduate appointment status is expiring within the next fiscal year.
  2. University administrators (individuals holding the rank of Assistant Dean or higher) seeking reappointment to the Graduate Faculty will be held to the qualifications outlined above, but their applications go directly to the Dean of the Graduate School who makes a recommendation to the Provost.  These appointments are approved by the Dean of the Graduate School.
  3. Recommendations for change in level of membership in Graduate Faculty status may be made at any time during the calendar year.  It is the responsibility of the department head, dean, and applicant to provide documentation to support the applicant’s qualifications for appointment.
  4. The applicant may withdraw the request for reappointment at any time.
  5. The department must notify the Graduate School when an individual holding graduate faculty status (Level 1, Level 2, or Associate Level) or graduate participant status is no longer eligible for the status appointment.  For example, if a faculty member resigns, retires, or is no longer holding the status that initially made the individual eligible for the appointment, the department must notify the Graduate School.  This information can be submitted at any time during the calendar year.
