About the Graduate School
Our name, The Graduate School, is intentional—we are not the office of “Graduate Admissions” nor “Graduate Academic Affairs”--we’re both and beyond. We support our graduate students from the beginning to the end of their degree, along with the curricular and faculty needs of all ~30 graduate programs. From the initial application to degree progress and even post-graduation, our team is involved in all aspects of graduate student success.
Think of The Graduate School as a “college within a college.” On any given day, we may be juggling a graduate open house, a meeting with multiple faculty to discuss the creation of a new master's degree, a Graduate Council with faculty program directors and a student-support event from the purely academic, in nature, like Three-Minute Thesis™ and Speed Mentoring to a cultural event, like Diwali or Iftar.
Add to that “mixed salad” a dash of career support featuring a graduate alumni panel, and you have a fairly complete picture of The Graduate School’s multi-pronged mission. Whether you hail from abroad or from down the street, our team looks forwarding to supporting YOU—prospective, current student or alum.
