UIC Graduate College Faculty

As members of the Graduate College Faculty of the Graduate Program in Neuroscience, you are asked to approve the appointment of the following faculty (see below) to membership in the faculty of the Neuroscience Program as dictated by the Bylaws of the Graduate College.

Standards for admission to membership in the Faculty of the Graduate College are determined jointly by the Dean and the Executive Committee of the Graduate College. There are four levels of membership: Full, Associate, Adjunct and Courtesy. Note that the levels of membership are different than the professor's rank of full professor, associate professor, etc., even though some of the same terminology is used for both.

Membership Categories

Membership categories of Graduate College Faculty allow different rights and privileges pertaining to student mentoring and serving on student committees. The following is excerpted from the Bylaws of the Graduate College.

Full Membership

Full Membership is granted for the term of employment to tenured or tenure-track faculty in a UIC department that houses a program under the umbrella of the Graduate College who have been recommended by the department or other teaching or research divisions and approved by the Dean. In the College of Medicine, recommendations for full membership are limited to appointments in the Research Track.

Retired faculty with Full membership automatically retain their memberships at the same level for three years after retirement. In special cases membership can be extended upon request to the Graduate Dean by the Executive Officer attesting to the fact that the nominated faculty is still active in graduate education.

Associate Membership

Associate members are typically clinical track or non-tenure system faculty whose program wishes to grant them the right to serve as primary advisors to students in that program. Once appointed, Associate members retain their membership so long as they continue to meet the criteria. Associate Membership is granted upon recommendation to the Dean by the Executive Officer of the department or equivalent unit. Retired faculty with Associate membership automatically retain their memberships at the same level for three years after retirement. In special cases membership can be extended upon request to the Graduate Dean by the Executive Officer attesting to the fact that the nominated faculty is still active in graduate education.

The nominating department must take a vote of the Full members of the Graduate Faculty on the question of the candidate's membership. The results of that vote must accompany the membership request.

The following individuals have been nominated by the Graduate Program in Neuroscience for membership in the faculty of the Graduate College. Click on an individual's name to see his/her curriculum vitae. For each nominee for Associate Membership, please select "Yes" to vote in favor of the nomination, "No" to vote against, or "Abstain." For Full Membership, please select "Affirm" or "Do not affirm."
