Who can chair my dissertation committee?

The departments of Sociology and Community & Environmental Sociology run a combined graduate program. Active faculty in either of these departments may chair the dissertation committee for graduate students in the combined Soc/C&E Soc program. Faculty from other departments who have a joint governance appointment with Soc/C&E Soc may also chair a dissertation committee for students in the combined program. Faculty from other departments who are affiliated with Soc/C&E Soc may serve on dissertation committees but may not chair them. Likewise, Soc/C&E Soc emeritus faculty may serve on dissertation committees but may not chair them; they may, however, act as co-chairs along with a current, active faculty member.
