Graduate Education Advisory Committee

The Graduate Education Advisory Committee (GEAC) advises agency staff and Board Members on procedures, issues, and long-range planning relating to graduate education. GEAC is currently working with Coordinating Board staff on a strategic plan which will emphasize the contributions that graduate education can make towards the goals of 60x30TX. GEAC is a 24-member committee comprised of faculty and administrators from the state's public and private universities and health-related institutions, plus one non-voting student member.

Current Status: GEAC is a standing, non-statutory committee that was established in 2005 and its purpose is outlined in the Texas Administrative Code.

Meeting Schedule: GEAC meets two to four times per year. Agendas are posted in the Texas Register a minimum of seven days before a meeting.

Membership: There are 24 GEAC Members who serve three-year terms. Many of the committee members are Graduate Deans. Members are nominated by their institutions, and they are selected to evenly represent public, graduate-degree-granting institutions of all sizes, regions, and missions. There is at least one representative from a private research institution and one graduate student member.
