Doctoral Oversight: University Graduate Council

The University Graduate Council (UGC) is a university-wide body that concentrates on the efficacy of Lesley University doctoral programs. The council is convened by the Associate Provost, and the membership includes the deans of the Graduate School of Education and the Graduate School of Social Sciences, the directors of doctoral programs and specializations, and faculty representatives appointed by the school deans. The UGC monitors the coherence and alignment of PhD requirements and procedures and inquires about the particular academic needs of doctoral students and about the quality of the scholarship evident in the research conducted by doctoral candidates.
