Graduate Faculty Policy

The Graduate Faculty Status policy reflects the philosophy that graduate education can flourish only in a climate in which faculty scholarship and professional activity is expected. To sustain a graduate culture requires a genuine commitment to scholarship and professional activity in all its forms, as well as, to effective teaching and advising. Graduate faculty appointments at Minnesota State University, Mankato are intended to signify active involvement in one or more graduate programs. Thus, only faculty with Graduate faculty appointments may teach graduate courses, mentor graduate students as they develop capstone projects, direct graduate-level independent studies, and advise graduate students in developing programs of study.
