Dear UGC Members:
 
Thank you to our returning members and a sincere welcome to our new members. In your role as members of Council, you provide a very valuable service for our colleges, departments, schools, as well as to the entire University. Not only do you make important recommendations regarding the quality, viability, and sustainability of newly proposed graduate programs, but you also provide an important perspective on graduate policies and standards that affect graduate education across the University.
 
The first UGC meeting will be held on the Tempe campus, Tuesday, August 28, 2018, from 1:30 – 3 p.m. in the Interdisciplinary B Building, room 286. For those individuals who will be traveling to the Tempe campus for the meeting, you may park at the Apache Blvd. Parking Structure. Parking validation will be provided.
 
We will be sharing the agenda materials for the August meeting and other pertinent Council information electronically with you. Thank you for your service to the University and our graduate students. I look forward to seeing you at the first meeting and working with you in the upcoming 2018-2019 academic year!
 
Warm regards,
Alfredo J. Artiles
