We expect our faculty to help maintain and enhance the quality of the GDPE community by attending GDPE seminars and social events, participating in the Front Range Student Ecology Symposium (e.g., serving as a judge, attending talks, posters, panel discussions, and the awards banquet), and occasionally teaching courses (e.g., participation in ECOL courses and seminars, and departmental courses with substantial ecological content).

GDPE Faculty: Have been granted authority by a CSU academic department to act as a primary major advisor (committee chair) for graduate students.

GDPE Faculty Affiliate: Can serve as a voting member on a graduate student committee as long as the affiliate has a degree equivalent to (or higher than) the degree program level of the student. Typically non-CSU scientists who have a formal affiliate status with an academic department, but they have not been granted explicit authority to act as a primary major advisor for graduate students.

GDPE Associate: MS or PhD scientists who do not have an affiliate appointment with a CSU academic department and therefore are not eligible to serve as voting members of graduate student committees; however, they may serve as non-voting members on graduate student committees.
