As a part of the 2014 leadership restructuring, the Graduate School is now a unit within the Office of the Vice Chancellor for Research and Graduate Education. The Graduate School’s core mission to foster excellence in graduate education remains unchanged and our integration with the research mission of the university is preserved. The Graduate School will continue to be the home of graduate programs across campus. We rely on our institution’s excellent graduate faculty to mentor graduate students through their degree progress and maintain the excellence of our graduate programs. The graduate faculty continue to be represented through the shared governance of the Graduate Faculty Executive Committee and the Graduate School Academic Planning Council, which are both chaired by the Dean of the Graduate School. We will continue to seek the feedback of our graduate students, directors of graduate study, graduate program coordinators, and faculty and staff colleagues throughout the implementation of the restructuring.
