        On May 28, Chancellor Gary S. May wrote:

        “The events of this week also cause me to believe even more strongly, if that’s possible, in building an inclusive environment that recognizes and respects people of all backgrounds and experiences. I remain committed to that and hope you will do what you can to eliminate racism, sexism, and other negative influences on our progression as a nation.”

        We join Chancellor May in these efforts toward building diverse, inclusive, and equitable environment in the Department of Communication and at the University of California Davis.

        Academic Advising

        Academic advising is available to doctoral students through several resources: from their major professor and committee, as well as from the program's graduate adviser. Guidance on administrative procedures also can be obtained from the program's graduate coordinator.

        Upon admission into the program, each student meets with the program's graduate adviser to determine temporary assignment to an academic adviser. The graduate adviser attempts to match each student with the faculty member whose interest and expertise best converges with the student's goals and objectives. The student must select a permanent academic adviser (major professor) no later than the end of the fall quarter of his or her first year of study.

        The major professor assists the student with a plan of study and supervises the student's research and progress toward satisfying degree requirements. The major professor also serves as chair of the student's dissertation and final oral examination committee.

        The interests of students often evolve to the degree that a change of advisers is indicated. A change can be made with the approval of the program's graduate adviser.
