DESCRIPTION AND WORKLOAD

The function of the Interdisciplinary Doctorate Overseers Committee (IDOC) is to review applications to the Interdisciplinary Doctorate Program in the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. Additionally, the IDOC oversees the students in the program to ensure that they are making progress toward their degrees.

The committee consists of seven faculty members of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences, including one representative from the School of Engineering. The Dean of the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences serves as an ex officio member without vote. Tenured A&S&E faculty are eligible to serve on this committee.

Committee members attend meetings at least twice per academic year to assess the progress of candidates already in the program. Additionally, the committee meets several times a year to evaluate the application of students to the Interdisciplinary Doctorate Program. Committee members must be willing to review applications to the program and to have at least one meeting with each applicant and their doctoral advisory committee. This committee is not appropriate for tenure-track faculty members.
