Conduct of the Doctoral Dissertation Public Lecture Presentation and Defense

The Doctoral Dissertation Public Lecture Presentation and Defense has three phases: the public lecture presentation and defense; a private meeting of the dissertation committee with the candidate; and the evaluation of the candidate's performance by the dissertation committee, in the absence of the audience and the candidate.

The Public Lecture Presentation and Defense

In the public presentation and defense, the candidate is expected to share the results of his/her dissertation research with the audience and the dissertation committee. This lecture or presentation may vary in length depending on the circumstances or discipline. Its conduct shall be under the jurisdiction of the candidate's dissertation advisor, serving as the Graduate Examiner. At the end of this public lecture or presentation, the dissertation committee members, as well as members of the audience, are encouraged to direct to the candidate questions pertaining to the presentation or research.

The Dissertation Advisory Committee's Meeting with the Candidate

At the conclusion of the public presentation and defense, the dissertation committee members meet privately with the candidate to pose further questions about the candidate's research or to address issues related to the dissertation manuscript. The Graduate Examiner presides at this meeting.

The Evaluation of the Candidate's Performance

Following completion of the public presentation and defense and the private meeting of the candidate with the committee, the dissertation committee members, in the absence of the candidate and audience, discuss the candidate's performance and decide whether or not he/she has passed the defense. If the candidate will need to make extensive corrections to the manuscript (ones requiring more than ten days), he/she should not be passed. The Graduate Examiner chairs the discussion and communicates the result to the candidate.

Graduate Examiners

The Graduate Examiner is usually the major advisor and chair of the Committee. The doctoral candidate reserves the right to request from the Graduate Director of the College, the appointment of a Graduate Examiner. All such requests must be made in writing at least two weeks in advance of the final defense. A Graduate Examiner may also be appointed at the discretion of the Graduate Director of the College.

The Graduate Examiner is the presiding officer and is responsible for the conduct of the examination. The Dissertation Public Lecture Presentation and Defense may not be convened until all members of the Committee are present, nor may any committee member leave until the presentation is concluded. After the examination, the Graduate Examiner shall excuse the candidate until the committee has prepared its report. If the candidate has failed, the Graduate Examiner Graduate Examiner shall indicate to the candidate and to the Graduate Education Office (under "Recommendations") what additional work the candidate must do before a second examination is held. The second examination may not be held until at least one academic term had elapsed, but must be held within one calendar year following the first examination. Results of the second examination are considered final.

If during the Dissertation Public Lecture Presentation and Defense, any inappropriate incident occurs, or if any serious controversy between members of the Committee develops, or inappropriate informality is evident, the Graduate Examiner shall intervene, excuse the candidate, resolve the issue, and secure assent as to procedure before recalling the candidate and resuming the examination. If the issue cannot be resolved satisfactorily, the examination shall be recessed or postponed, and the problem referred to the Graduate Director of the College.
