The Graduate Executive Committee holds monthly meetings. The committee members include the Dean, the Associate Dean(s), the President of the Graduate Students' Society, or designate, and one Faculty member from each of the nine faculties that hold graduate programs. It advises and assists the dean in the policy and decision making processes and makes motions on appropriate matters for consideration at the Faculty of Graduate Studies Council.
