ACADEMIC PLANNING AND ASSESSMENT
The Office of Academic Planning and Assessment plays a critical role in the perpetuation of high quality graduate programs, and in turn, in the successful research enterprise on campus. The unit has two core functions: academic planning and program review, and data analytics and reporting.
The Office of Academic Services serves as a campus resource to promote and facilitate excellence in graduate education for current graduate students, from the time of matriculation until conferral of the graduate degree, as well as to those faculty and staff across campus who also support them during this time.
The Office of Admissions is usually the first interaction that an applicant has with the Graduate School. The office partners with 150 academic programs to process approximately 20,000 applications annually. It is a resource for applicants, students, faculty and academic programs throughout the admissions process, from prospect through matriculation.
DIVERSITY, INCLUSION AND FUNDING
The Office of Diversity, Inclusion and Funding plays a central role in creating an inclusive and multicultural educational landscape through the retention and recruitment of diverse students, especially those of domestic minority and low-income/first generation college backgrounds. The unit oversees the Graduate School’s fellowship and funding competitions, serves as the coordinating unit for external fellowships, and provides assistance on campus-wide funding issues.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT AND COMMUNICATIONS
The Office of Professional Development and Communications coordinates, develops, and promotes learning opportunities to foster the academic and professional skills of graduate students. It also supports the various communication platforms of the Graduate School, including website, social media, and print materials.
