Committee Members. CGU encourages the inclusion of an expert in the student's field who is also from outside The Claremont Colleges. Outside examiners may be included on a four-person committee, but not on a three-person committee.
External Examiners. External examiners may be drawn from the faculty of other institutions or may be a qualified practitioner in the student's field. The outside expert has a vote in committee proceedings only upon the approval of the dean.
Approval. Dissertation committees must be approved by the dean of the school.
