Students applying for the Ph.D. degree program must have identified a graduate committee chair from the Water Faculty who has agreed to serve in that capacity before they can be admitted to the Water Program. The students’ advisory committee for the doctoral degree will consist of no fewer than four members, three of which must be members of the Graduate Water Faculty. At least one or more of the members must be from a department other than the student’s chair but all four may be on the water faculty.
