Executive Committee of the Graduate Faculty (ECGF)

The graduate faculty, which meets on call, depends upon the Executive Committee of the Graduate Faculty for the creation of policy with respect to graduate study at Duke University, as well as for other delegated responsibilities. The ECGF normally meets regularly on matters affecting The Graduate School.

The ECGF consists of an elected faculty chair and four representatives from each of the academic divisions—humanities, biological sciences, physical sciences, and social sciences. The chair may be one of those representatives. Faculty representatives are elected by their respective divisions for staggered two-year terms. The dean and the associate dean for academic affairs sit as ex officio members of the committee.
