Graduate Advisory Committee (GPAC)

The College of Forestry Graduate Programs Advisory Committee is chaired by the Associate Dean of Graduate and International Programs and is comprised of representatives from all three departments. The Committee meets quarterly to propose and debate ideas on all things related to graduate education and graduate student support.  We envision the Committee as playing a very significant role in achieving the College's Excellence in Education priorities. To share items of potential interest to the Committee, please contact GPAC members. To learn more about the Commitee's activities, view the notes of past meetings.
