The Graduate School is committed to creating a supportive environment within which you can pursue your educational goals. You likely will discover the myriad of ways in which graduate study differs from the undergraduate experience, placing far more responsibility on you to navigate the intellectual, social, and operational landscape. Along with other campus departments and students organizations, we actively work to extend and enrich the community of scholars by fostering a positive academic and social community for you as a scholar.
