2018 Reaffirmation Teams - Faculty Committee

Faculty Committee

This committee reviews a variety of issues related to the faculty at UT Dallas. The University must demonstrate that it has an adequate faculty as well as a faculty that has members qualified to teach in the areas they are assigned. As a part of this review process, this committee will review the university's credentialing process, which includes the verification of foreign credentials. Additionally, the transcripts of every faculty member who received a graduate degree at an institution outside the United States will be reviewed by an outside agency to ensure the credentials are equivalent to similar credentials earned at accredited universities in the U.S.
