The purpose of these meetings is to advise students in their courses of graduate study, monitor their progress towards the timely completion of the Ph.

The Faculty Advisor chairs the Ph. Exam Committee and works with the Graduate Coordinator to organize and coordinate the qualifying exam. In addition, the Faculty Advisor informs the Director of Graduate Studies and the Graduate Coordinator about the qualifying exam dates, committee membership, and outcome.
