This handbook is designed to provide information on the policies, procedures, and requirements of the NGP.
It is the responsibility of the Neuroscience Graduate Program Committee to compile and maintain the NGP Handbook of Policies and Procedures, which lists rules and practices by which the NGP is to be managed. The Neuroscience Graduate Program Committee will be responsible for updating the NGP Handbook of Policies and Procedures to conform to changes in the Graduate School Handbook or other University policies.
The Neuroscience Graduate Program Committee will accept recommendations from faculty and students for revisions to the Handbook at any time. Revisions to the Handbook require approval by unanimous vote of the Committee. If the Committee vote is not unanimous, the changes must be approved by a majority vote of the entire NGP faculty.
