Graduate Mathematics Advisors

As stated in Graduate Mathematics Admission, under Advising Committee:

The departmental graduate committee will assign tentatively one of its members as advisor to each incoming graduate student. Within the first year, the student will have to propose an advising committee consisting of three departmental graduate faculty members. After consulting with the proposed advising committee, the departmental graduate committee will appoint the student's advising committee (which may differ from the student's proposal). One of the three members of the advising committee will chair that committee and be the student's advisor.
