SLAT Faculty

The SLAT Interdisciplinary Graduate Program includes over 90 faculty members from 19 academic departments at the University of Arizona housed in four different colleges. All SLAT faculty are expected to maintain an active agenda in scholarship (research, publication, and teaching), and to serve as members of students’ examination and dissertation committees. In addition, most are expected to become faculty mentors for one or more SLAT students within their area of specialization. Mentors not only provide assistance and encouragement for student research and publication (described above), but also serve as academic role models, and enhance student socialization to the values, norms, practices, and attitudes of the discipline.  To view a list of faculty by area of specialization, click here.

In addition to area of specialization, the SLAT GIDP recognizes two kinds of formal affiliation:

  • Regular members are those who are significantly active in the SLAT Program. Significant activity includes but is not limited to: (a) serving on a SLAT committee; (b) chairing/serving on a SLAT dissertation committee; (c) chairing/serving on a SLAT comprehensive exam committee; (d) teaching a graduate course that may count towards the SLAT degree; and/or (e) conducting ongoing scholarship resulting in publication, presentation, teaching innovation, and/or other professional activity in SLAT-related fields. 
  • Affiliate members are those with a general interest in SLAT-related fields who wish to be fully informed of the SLAT Program’s operation, and who wish to engage in a limited subset of SLAT Program activities.

A list of faculty in each category can be accessed by clicking on the category name above.

All University Graduate Faculty may hold Regular or Affiliate membership in SLAT. All tenured/tenure-eligible and continuing status/continuing status-eligible SLAT Graduate Faculty are eligible to chair dissertation committees or comprehensive exam committees. (See also section 1.15 of the Graduate Faculty Policy for important criteria information about the endorsement to chair a doctoral committee.)

Regular members may choose to reduce their commitment to SLAT and step down to Affiliate status should their teaching or research duties lessen. It is emphasized that these Regular and Affiliate Memberships do not represent primary or secondary citizenship in the SLAT GIDP. Rather they are a means of explicitly identifying a member’s level of active involvement in the SLAT Program. All SLAT faculty shall be considered Graduate Faculty of SLAT.
