Faculty Obligations

Faculty members who will be teaching graduate courses in the I/O concentration in any given semester will work together to coordinate requirements among the classes offered that semester to ensure that collectively a reasonable graduate-level workload is placed on the students. Faculty expectations for each class will be described in each course syllabus distributed at the beginning of the semester. I/O faculty will meet at the end of each semester to review the progress of each student enrolled in the I/O concentration to determine whether the student will be recommended for continuation in the program.
