Graduate Program Directors

It is the prerogative of the faculty members of any graduate program at the Stony Brook University to choose their own Graduate Program Director. It is the policy of the Graduate School, however, that the Graduate Program Director shall be chosen from the tenured faculty of the program. In cases where there is an associate director or its equivalent, that position shall also be filled from among the tenured faculty. The Dean of the Graduate School will consider requests for exceptions to this policy.
