Mission and Vision


To foster excellence in graduate education.

Vision Statement

Given its campus-wide responsibility for graduate education and its connection to the research mission through the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education, the Graduate School is in a unique position to set university-wide standards and policies, serve a special advocacy and communication role, promote diversity initiatives, and otherwise augment the margin of excellence. We fulfill these roles by initiating and incubating new ideas, and facilitating graduate education through partnerships with schools/colleges and other campus units.
