Requesting an external committee member

Committee members from outside the University may be added if there is justification that the member brings scientific expertise to the committee which is unique to the current research being performed by faculty at the University of Minnesota.

A letter of request from the program DGS, along with the faculty member’s CV (including their birthdate) must be submitted to Dr. Carrie Wilmot (, Associate Dean for Research and Graduate Education in the College of Biological Sciences. 

Steps to be taken: The DGS will submit the request by email to Dr. Carrie Wilmot, Associate Dean of Research and Education. The program will be notified by email with a decision. If approved, the graduate program will notify CBS Human Resources Dept. of the approval along with the faculty member’s birth date, for entry into the Peoplesoft system.
