Brief guidelines for effective organization and administration of graduate schools are presented in this policy statement. It is stated that to establish the proper environment for the advancement of learning, a primary responsibility of graduate schools, administrators must provide for: freedom of inquiry and expression, effective academic organization for graduate programs, resources and facilities required for graduate study, and the long and honored tradition of quality in academic scholarship associated with graduate study. Each of these items are summarized, along with specific topics such as the choice of faculty, essential functions of a graduate school (approval of new degree porgrams, student admission, and recommendations of degree recipients), and basic guidelines for effective governance.
