Graduate Faculty

The rights, privileges and responsibilities of graduate faculty are based on individual scholarship and are not directly related to professorial rank. The full graduate faculty position is the highest level of scholarship at Shepherd University for those who teach graduate courses and represents a current national or international reputation. Associate graduate faculty status conveys a current mature scholarship level, and assistant graduate faculty status represents a scholarship level that is current within the discipline. An honorary graduate faculty status represents a significant contribution to the literature over an entire career.
